This defect considered MUST-FIX (show-stopper) for Florence Gold

Comment 3 Erik Troan 2001-03-12 21:36:21 UTC
This is hardly a show stopper. It causes %m to appear in some logs instead of

Comment 4 Glen Foster 2001-03-12 22:38:06 UTC
Take it up with Mike Fulbright (he made the call) and leave qa-whiteboard alone,

Comment 5 Michael Fulbright 2001-03-12 22:39:47 UTC
ewt it has a patch - just need you to say if its ok or not.

Comment 6 Erik Troan 2001-03-13 00:14:24 UTC
I don't like the patch -- I'd rather remove the %m's whereever possible to save
code space. It doesn't need to be done for this release though, as it doesn't
actually cause any problems.

I'll let you and Glen sort it out.
