Description of problem:
Attempting to delete messages from normal-user mailbox in mutt says "mailbox is read-only"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Attempt to delete message in mutt.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run mutt
2. display message in /var/spool/mail mailbox
3. press "d".
Message "Mailbox is read-only". Message not deleted.
Message should be deleted.
Seems to be related to the upgrade (this morning) to mutt-1.9.5.
Deleting the message in "mailx" works fine.
thank you for submitting your bug report. I'm going to look at it.
the problem seems to be that USE_DOTLOCK became enabled in this release.
Could you please test the fix  ?
Matej: yes, the RPM you provided does fix the behavior I described. Thank you.
Additional: I notice the man page for mutt mentions /usr/bin/mutt_dotlock, describing it as "The privileged dotlocking program". This is not in the RPM (either new or old). I haven't researched this further.
The mutt_dotlock is not shipped in fedora. We probably should patch the man page to reflect this fact.
