Description Binand Sethumadhavan 2001-01-30 16:42:44 EST
Someone on our local lug mailing list had a problem with sendmail,
so his fetchmail wasn't able to connect to the listener. The error
message he got was:

fetchmail: timeout after 134661752 seconds waiting for listener to respond.

which is obviously preposterous. The patch attached fixes this issue.

Comment 1 Binand Sethumadhavan 2001-01-31 04:44:40 EST
The patch I submitted is broken.

Anyway, the bug seems to be fixed in fetchmail 5.6.0.

As 5.6.0 is currently in Raw Hide, I'll tag this as fixed there.  Thanks!
