Subject:   update_prebinding buffer overflow

Hello,


I'm running OS X 10.3.2, and I always encounter an exactly same buffer overflow error upon running update_prebinding. This is after running Disk Utility, Alsoft DiskWarrior, and Norton Disk Doctor. Here is a sample output.


$ sudo update_prebinding -root / -force

buffer overflow!
Abort trap



It always overflows at 128. I thought it might have to do with a bug in sudo, but the same problem recurred when I logged in as root and executed the command without sudo. Could you please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
