Ping? Is there a special reason, that this report wasn't resolved?

Comment 2 Jiri TRAVNICEK, alias JITR {temporarily not reading bugmail} 2006-07-06 18:00:06 UTC
Well, also the RHEL 4's latest sendmail package (`sendmail-8.13.1-3.RHEL4.5')
has this problem.

As far as I understand the things, it might be better to file this bug against
RHEL as the RHEL seems to have a bit higher priority. In fact several bugfixes
make it to the Fedora due to them being fixed in RHEL. :-)

However this bug seems to be rather a minor one, which itself may have decreased
it's priority...

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2006-07-19 10:04:33 UTC
Fixed in rawhide in rpm sendmail-8.13.7-3 or newer.
