Comment 1 Mate Wierdl 2005-08-21 11:24:35 EDT
Description of problem:
attachments created by evolution are extracted with ";" appended.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

always if the file name is not quoted (say, does not contain spaces).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Take the attached email message created by evolution.

2. run uudeview on the file.  

3.  Verify that the two extraced files have ";" appended to their real name.
Actual results:
$ uudeview -i 1124636005.3427.otthon.memphis.edu\:2\,S
Loaded from 1124636005.3427.otthon.memphis.edu:2,S: 'a and b' (a): a.html; part
1   Base64
Loaded from 1124636005.3427.otthon.memphis.edu:2,S: 'a and b' (a): b.html; part
1   Base64

Found 'a.html;' State 16 Base64 Parts 1 OK
Found 'b.html;' State 16 Base64 Parts 1 OK

    File successfully written to /home/mw/EXTRACT/a.html;
    File successfully written to /home/mw/EXTRACT/b.html;
2 files decoded from 1 input file, 0 failed

$ ls *\;
a.html;  b.html;

Expected results:

Instead, should have the files

a.html  b.html

Additional info:

This is an x86_64 FC4 system.  Of course, it is possible that evolution is 
not conforming to some rfc's.

I can reproduce this. A message created with mutt, however, doesn't show this
behaviour so I tend to blame evolution. The best would probably be to have a
look at the correct RFC. I will attach my example from mutt. I will also try to
reach the upstream author for a statement.

FC3 and FC4 have now been EOL'd.

Please check the ticket against a current Fedora release, and either adjust the
release number, or close it if appropriate.


Your friendly BZ janitor :-)
