  I'm a dev for Gentoo Linux, and this bug I reported a few months ago, but have never been able to solve or get any hard debugging info on.  I held off releasing a _pre1 in hopes that by _pre2 this would be somehow resolved, or find out that it wasn't at least a distro specific bug.  Now with _pre2 I have had 3 reports of this happening...filling gigs of HD space.  This also doesn't seem to be specific to as all the bugs between _pre1 and _pre2 have happened on different language files of One of the weird things though is that now a bug has shown up of this actually happening during the install phase of one of those help files, when all the others it happened during the compile. On a side note this seems to be a very rare bug, but when it bites it bites hard.
