Description ptomblin 2007-06-19 13:57:11 UTC
Description of problem:
When the at/batch job finishes, the attempt to deliver the email fails with the
message "Jun 19 09:24:58 allhats atd[19566]: Open of jobfile failed: Success"
and then atd dies.

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

How reproducible:
Every time.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Submit a batch job that produces email, like "echo 'yes'"
2. Restart service atd if it's dead

Actual results:
atd is dead.
The message "atd[19504]: Open of jobfile failed: Success" is in /var/log/messages
The actual output of the at job is in /var/spool/at/spool.
The batch job file is still in /var/spool/at

Expected results:
An email is sent to me.
atd continues to run.
The message and job files are cleaned up from their respective directories.

Not sure if it's relevant, but this system has been progressively upgraded from
RedHat 6 or so, and had only just been upgraded from Fedora Core 5 to Fedora 7.
