Sorry to bother everyone with this. I, finally, have gotten around to
applying all of the patches to our implementation of gap (3r4p3). [Hey,
isn't that what Christmas vacation is for?] I had no trouble with
gapfix25, which was a compilation of the first 25 bug fixes. Also,
bugfix26 went without any trouble.

However, when I tried to apply bugfix27, I got an error message. I
followed the instructions, and renamed the mail message to fix27lib.dif,
and executed the command:
patch -p0 < fix27lib.dif

Patch ran and reported the following:

Good.  This file appears to be the version.
Patching file lib/ctcharac.g using Plan A...
Hunk #1 failed at 3.
1 out of 1 hunks failed--saving rejects to lib/ctcharac.g.rej
Hmm...  The next patch looks like a unified diff to me...
The text leading up to this was:
| #H  'List' does no longer accept lists with holes.
| #H
| #H  Revision  1995/06/28  07:03:38  sam

It then asked for the name of a file to patch, and I didn't have a clue
what I should do. I checked the version of patch:

> patch -v
Patch version 2.1

So that does not seem to be the problem. Does anybody have any advice?
