Description nt.guilde 2003-04-13 20:36:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3) Gecko/20030312

Description of problem:
In 'makewhatis', function handle_entire_line() sees the following strings for
the commands in 'postfix-1.1.11-11' :
postalias \Postfix alias database maintenance
postcat \show Postfix queue file contents
postconf \Postfix configuration utility
postdrop \Postfix mail posting utility
postfix Postfix control program


if (!match(x, / - /))

rejects them, and no entry is made in /var/cache/man/whatis.
  This behaviour has already been signaled for RH 8.0 ; the submitter thinks
he remembers having received a mail claiming the error has been corrected
in man-1.5k-6.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man -k postfix

Actual Results:  No output from 'man -k postfix'
