test this? Years ago, I used to work on the team that developed

for several apps on OS/2 and Windows as well as the OS/2 operating
system. I would have been fired for such incompetence.
But testing is done by unorganized volunteers, not by a company.
However, there is a note in the release notes that warns about problems
And at least the document I wrote about upgrading warns about the
*.rpmnew and *.rpmorig files.
