I've been using RHL/Fedora since 1999, and before that Slackware
starting in 1997. So that depends on what your definition of "suddenly"
is... ;)

I also may be thinking of my *Debian* server, which to this day does not
suffer from this braindeadness:

$ ls -l /sbin/ /usr/sbin/|grep \\---

$ ls -l /usr/sbin/usermod 
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 60160 2007-02-27 01:53 /usr/sbin/usermod
