Description of problem:
sendmail fails to start with the following error:
sendmail: fatal: flush queue mode requires no recipient
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. service sendmail start
2. see error above
Actual Results: No sendmail
Expected Results: sendmail should start
The bug seems to be caused by line # 65 in /etc/init.d/sendmail where
there is an extra space between the "-q" and $SMQUEUE.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Fixed in rawhide in RPM sendmail-8.13.7-3 or newer.
