   54   dupe->duplicates, not via dupe->next. [AL]

   78   the matching process when large files are involved.
   79 - Added warning whenever a file cannot be deleted. [CHL, AL]
   80 - Fixed bug where some files would not be closed after failure. [AL]

   86   my system than the default code). [AL]
