Re: LD script bug

Hi Ankur,

> ld version: 20030206 on a vanilla RH 9 system. 

Note - this is an old version of the linker.  I would recommend that
you download the sources for the latest version (2.14) and find out if
this fixes the problem.

Well, the *fill* size is correct for the displayed resulting address,
ie 0x08048518 does equal 0x80488508 plus 0x10.

But I agree that the resulting address appears to be wrong.
(0x8048527 & 0xffffffe0) ought to be 0x8048520 rather than 0x8048518,
so the fill size ought to be 0x18.

If switching to the 2.14 release does not fix the problem then please
could you send a *small* reproducible example to the list that
reproduces the problem.
