           Summary: tail -c+ incorrect behaviour
           Product: Busybox
           Version: 1.18.x
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P5
         Component: Standard Compliance
        AssignedTo: unassigned at busybox.net
        ReportedBy: spam.caminati at gmail.com
                CC: busybox-cvs at busybox.net
   Estimated Hours: 0.0

dd if=/dev/urandom of=c bs=10k count=2
busybox tail -c+8200 c > 1
busybox tail -c+8208 c > 2
diff 1 2

It results 1 and 2 have identical content, while they should differ.

System details:
BusyBox v1.18.5 (2011-07-13 22:22:30 UTC) multi-call binary.

Linux box #2012 SMP Wed May 12 17:05:42 EEST 2010 i686 i686
i386 GNU/Linux

PS: This bug is probably the root of the problems in installing lilypond
reported here:


and elsewhere.
Since this works exactly up to lilypond version 2.13.41, I expect some bug
triggering threshold laying between 7747 and 8200 (as above).
