    Hi,

    I am not sure how, but I've managed to mess something in the OS. Here's what I get when I type certain commands --

    Code:
    [~]>host apple.com
    [B]Message Catalog System: corrupt file.Message Catalog System: corrupt file.Message Catalog System: corrupt file.[/B]apple.com has address 17.149.160.49
    apple.com has address 17.112.152.57
    apple.com mail is handled by 20 mail-in1.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 20 mail-in2.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 20 mail-in6.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 25 eg-mail-in2.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 100 mail-in3.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 10 mail-in11.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 10 mail-in12.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 10 mail-in13.apple.com.
    apple.com mail is handled by 15 eg-mail-in11.apple.com.
    
    or

    Code:
    [~]>man wrongcommand
    [B]Message Catalog System: corrupt file.Message Catalog System: corrupt file.Message Catalog System: corrupt file.[/B]No manual entry for wrongcommand
    
    Any idea what's causing it and how to sort it out? Suggestions are welcome.

    What commands are you typing when you get this?

    Well, so far I've seen this in the commands host and man.
