Description of problem:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/mail/vonbrand
Mailbox exists, and has mail. My self-build nmh-1.1 (no patches) works fine.
With this, nmh is completely useless to me.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
nmh-1.1-7.fc4

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. inc
2.
3.
  
Actual results:
inc: unable to lock and fopen /var/mail/vonbrand

Expected results:
Get mail...

Comment 1 Josh Bressers 2005-05-10 21:04:10 UTC
I've verified this.  The problem is that the build is defaulting to using
dotlocks to lock files rather than filesystem locking.

I'll add a fix into CVS tonight.

Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2005-05-10 22:25:43 UTC
OK, I've fixed this in CVS.  Just waiting on the extras build process to kick
in.  In the event it takes too long, I've stuck the source rpms here:
