Neither could I!!! I don't have anymore the two original directories, but I have just produced two directories with the same names R and R2, and everything works as it should. I'm really baffled, before posting this morning I made a lot of different attempts with different syntaxes and with no success. I have a copy, not in this laptop, of the original directories, I will make another attempt tomorrow to see if I can reproduce the issue.

I am very sorry to have bothered you!

Thanks again!

I found the two directories and at the beginning I couldn't reproduce the issue and I felt very ashamed (maybe this morning I was just brainfarting). Then it happened again, here is the proof. The first couple of attempts however everything worked fine, so I suppose there is something strange going on, maybe with my system.

Can some moderator close this thread?

This thread is about the old version of rmlint.

New rewritten and better-in-all-aspects version (:P) is here.

**@motmaos:** I guess the easiest solution is installing the new version and check if it happens there. Probably not.**@kozaki:** That weird and unreproduceable crash is hopefully fixed too.**@Narga:** You might want to look at the *--sortcriteria* option.
