In Tomahawk Desktop, we try to make as much as possible all components
of the OS are separately installable by the user, therefore, all
components are separately upgradeable. We have a really running well OS
based on FreeBSD sources though there are some hopefully minor issues to
be resolved. We are about to release the OS for developer preview.
As the less we installed was too old, we have upgraded our less to
less-436.tar.gz from http://www.greenwoodsoftware.com/less/. Again
The result is the same. Are we sure less is the culprit?
