An exact solution for the magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) equations for a time-de
pendent, two-dimensional flow of an incompressible plasma with a uniform sh
ear-strain rate in hyperbolic magnetic field is given. This solution predic
ts that the presence of a shear-strain in the plasma-flow tends to impede t
he current-sheet formation near the hyperbolic magnetic neutral line. (C) 1
