Description Jonathan Kamens 2005-05-16 16:07:53 UTC
I was getting a coredump out of ipop3d (which I know isn't supported anymore, 
but the problem I was seeing could just as easily occur in another, currently 
supported app), because there's a pointer variable in ipop3d called "msg" and 
the linker was trying to call that variable as a function from inside libaudit 
rather than calling the "msg" function in the library.  I think the function 
should be renamed to something more specific to libaudit and hence less likely 
to conflict with variable names in applications.

Thanks for reporting the issue. I've fixed it in 0.8.1 - which will be in
rawhide shortly.
