Description David Lawrence 2001-03-27 09:59:41 EST
mutt-1.2.5i-9 no longer polls my mailboxes properly for new messages when
running for first time in a login session. If I ssh over to devserv and run
mutt from there my mailbox list properly shows boxes containing new
messages right from the start. Devserv is running 
mutt-1.2.5i-3. Both machines are using the same .muttrc file which I will
attach to this bug report. I will try downgrading the mutt on my
workstation to the same as devserv and see if it solves the problem for me.

I can't reproduce this here; it notices new mail in my mailboxes OK. Are you
using maildir, mbox, or mh?  Do you have the nfslock service started?
Comment 3 David Lawrence 2001-03-27 11:57:37 EST
I am using mbox. Funny thing is is that I downgraded to the same version of mutt
that is currently
installed on devserv and that still did not fix the problem.

Pattern of events:
1. run xterm on local box with /home/devel nfs mounted
2. run mutt and it comes up in my inbox by default showing any new messages.
3. Then type a 'c' and '?' to show directory containing mailboxes.
4. There are not any 'N' characters next to any mailboxes even after tabbing a
couple times.
5. Bring up an xterm and ssh over to devserv.devel.
6. Repeat steps 2 and 3.
7. Many mailboxes show new messages next to them as normal.

Could this be a new NFS issue with locking or something. I did not have this
problem locally running 7.0 so now I believe it is more than just a newer mutt
package.

What happens if you sync your clock to the clock on devserv?
Comment 5 David Lawrence 2001-03-27 19:10:30 EST
Okay it seems to be better now since my clock was in fact off from devserv.
Syncing up seems to have helped.
