Description Ahmon Dancy 2007-08-17 19:33:36 EDT
Just upgraded from FC5 to FC7 and this problem starting happening.  


The following command returns a non-zero exit status now.  Before the upgrade,
it returned 0.
inc +sprs  -file /tmp/testmbox -silent; echo $?

This command, however, (which is the same as the above, except w/o -silent) does
return the proper exit status (0).
inc +sprs  -file /tmp/testmbox; echo $?

This is hosing my mail filtering scripts.

The nmh from fc6 works (after a rebuild).  

I had a look at inc.c in the sources and there are definite suspicious changes
between the two versions.
Comment 2 Josh Bressers 2007-08-20 09:17:53 EDT
I see the problem and I know how to fix it.  Hopefully I can build a new package
later today.

Patch for this issue

I'll also include this in the upstream CVS later today.
Comment 4 Josh Bressers 2007-08-21 21:03:53 EDT
I have submitted an update for this.  In theory the update system should close
this bug upon it being pushed.

I've also added this fix upstream.  Please let me know if you find any issues
with my fix.

Thanks for the report.
