Description: '
Received': from RUTGERS.ARPA by Xerox.ARPA ; 18 AUG 84 09':39':55 PDT'

From': Jeffrey Shulman <SHULMAN@RUTGERS.ARPA>'
Subject': Databasefns bug'
When the data base is dumped during a MAKEFILE (SAVEDBFLG = YES) the'
data in the data base file is the date of the OLD file (not the one just'
made.)  This means the next LOAD (with LOADDBFLG = YES) will NOT load'
the data base file since it thinks it is old.  What has to be done is'
first MAKEFILE file file, reLOAD it and then DUMPDB.'
In my project we deal with 25+ source files they take over an hour to'
analyze if we cannot save this information with SAVEDBFLG = YES.  I am'
surprised that this bug hasn''t been encountered before.'
P.S. My project and I consider this a pretty serious bug and I would'
like the source to fix myself if this will not be fixed in the near'
(i.e. this week) future.  Thanks.'
