Description David Rees 2000-05-02 21:48:48 EDT
mutt doesn't read /etc/Muttrc for it's defaults.  It seems to search
/var/tmp/mutt-root/etc/Muttrc instead.  Probably a build/packaging problem,
just haven't had time to look at it myself.

Here's the strace:

------------
access("/home/dbr/.muttrc-1.0.1i", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
access("/home/dbr/.muttrc", F_OK)       = 0
access("/home/dbr/.muttrc", F_OK)       = 0
access("/var/tmp/mutt-root/etc/Muttrc-1.0.1i", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such
file or directory)
access("/var/tmp/mutt-root/etc/Muttrc", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
access("/var/tmp/mutt-root/etc/Muttrc-1.0.1i", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such
file or directory)
access("/var/tmp/mutt-root/etc/Muttrc", F_OK) = -1 ENOENT (No such file or
directory)
access("/home/dbr/.muttrc", F_OK)       = 0

Looks like I need mutt-1.0.1i-6 according to a previous bug report.
