#862: system updates repeatedly applying the same update
 Reporter:  hsw             |      Owner:
     Type:  System Defect   |     Status:  new
 Priority:  major           |  Milestone:
Component:  PC-BSD Updater  |    Version:  10-STABLE
 Keywords:                  |
 System updates are not applying, the process is always showing an
 update on:
 10-STABLE-p5 FreeBSD 10-STABLE-p5 #0: Fri Dec  6 02:13:09 UTC 2013
 root at amd64-builder.pcbsd.org:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  amd64

 Running freebsd-update in a terminal shows that the following:

 `The following files will be updated as part of updating to 10-STABLE-p5:`

 Repeating the fetch after the install shows the same file to be updated.

 I looked at the /var/db/freebsd-update and the /usr/sha/man/man2/extattr*
 and it seems as if the update process is just recreating this file as
 a hard link.  (all the exattr*.2.gz are hardlink to the same man page)

 As a final test I rolled back all of the updates until there were no
 installed, then ran fetch/install, but once this update is reached, the
 update show the same problem.
