The problem is that both of the files:




... are symbolic links ... to each other.

The solution is to remove one symlink and replace it with a real file as 
shown below:

rm -f /usr/share/locale/no_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME
touch /usr/share/locale/no_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME

Now /usr/share/locale/nb_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME is a symbolic link and
/usr/share/locale/no_NO.ISO8859-1/LC_TIME is a real (albeot zero length)

And, yes, someone ought to fix this in CVS.

hated and scorned. When his cause succeeds however, the timid join him,
for then it costs nothing to be a patriot." -- Mark Twain
