Description Jarno Huuskonen 2000-08-24 06:13:05 EDT
This was already reported on bugtraq, but here it goes again.

If user runs minicom -C foo he can create file foo with uucp as group
owner. I hacked this ugly little patch that tries to fix this 
(attached separately). Please note that I haven't had time to fully test
this patch so it's quite possible it will break something !!
