Thank you.

My responce to reading that ChangeLog was:

    Feh!  Lets buy Robert Corbett and the CSRG a beer.  Berkeley YACC
    from 4.4BSD reported this bug long before Bison did.  
[I wasn't going to respond to this thread publicly, but give credit where
credit is due].

This just shows why just because a single tool "works", people should not
ignore the real diagnosttics from another tool.

I did not like the C output especially compaired to what Byacc did the
face of the error.  However I was so put down when I brought up there was
an error in the grammar I didn't bother to send the C code differences to
this list as I wasn't being listened to.
