Description Matt Domsch 2001-04-30 12:15:45 EDT
This is a bug report against Pine 4.33 as found in Red Hat Linux 7.1,
pine-4.33-8, running on an i386-based platform.

I've run into strange case where pine, when sending mail, mangles
whitespace, in this case, inside of a patch.  Attached are
several files.  patch-before-pine.gz contains the patch as extracted by
diff -bu (compressed for this message to ensure it says the same, but was
included in the message body as text when sent).  patch-after-pine.gz
contains the patch as exported from pine after being sent/received.

In looking at a diff of the hex dump, you'll see that
\n[space]\n[space*7]\n got merged into \n\n\n.  This causes the
patch, when received, to fail to apply.

-0000150   s   [   3   ]   )   )   ;  \n      \n
-0000160      \n   +                           s   c   s   i   _   s   e
+0000150   s   [   3   ]   )   )   ;  \n  \n  \n   +

Hopefully will be fixed in PINE 4.34 or whatever is the next release.
Deferring for next official PINE release. (or patch submission)

Workaround: Send patches as file attachments.  (Yes, I know this p*ss*s
Linus off)  ;o)
Comment 7 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-19 02:59:29 EDT
Any word back from the pine team on this?  I wish they would open PINE CVS
up to the world so that hotfixes can be pulled from it...
Comment 8 Matt Domsch 2001-05-19 10:28:28 EDT
No comments at all from either pine list I sent the bug report to.
Comment 9 Mike A. Harris 2001-05-28 17:53:13 EDT
That's a typical response from closed development projects.  I just updated
our pine package with a pinepgp fix, but I don't suspect another update until
a new release of PINE is available.
Comment 10 David Woodhouse 2001-06-11 18:18:41 EDT
This looks like a duplicate (and indeed a regression) of Bug #23679, which was
fixed many moons ago in a 7.0 erratum release, IIRC. I haven't yet verified that
the cause is the same gratuitous stripwhitespace() call just before sending the
mail. I suspect it is.
