Hello Bob,

Thanks for the prompt reply.Due to certain constraints I am to fix this bug
within this version itself.I know thats kind of lame but thats the way its
reqd to be.I can give you more inputs on the bug right now.

While running rm tests as part of testsuites we have tgo run the command "rm
-ir z" wherein user input is expected.The userinput irrespective of what is
fed is always taken negative and always returned as
"user_permission_denied".I triede putting in more logs and I could see in
the function "yesno" in file yesno.c even though response pointed to "y" the
rpmatch function was exiting with 0 return value

As for that matter any response value always came with 0 as return value
from rpmatch function.

I have to use "ENABLE_NLS" in this case.Let em know in case of any more
inputs required

Thanks and Regards,
