Since gawk has been causing so many problems in the last years I just gave up 
on it. Mawk has been faithful all along so I'm trusting that package. I don't 
see a reason to start using gawk really (as there's no benefit to gain from 
switching to gawk, well unless you care that it's GNU software).
