Expected results:

The message opens

Additional info:

I also get this message in my selinux audit log:

type=ANOM_ABEND msg=audit(1224173887.091:35): auid=500 uid=500 gid=500 ses=1 subj=unconfined_u:unconfined_r:unconfined_t:s0-s0:c0.c1023 pid=3304 comm="alpine" sig=6

I've done an audit2allow and audit2why with it but with no success. I get the same error with selinux in permissive.  I get the same error when I try to export the message from the folder list.
Comment 1 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2008-10-21 12:05:21 EDT
Sorry for the delay... We don't patch alpine, so this is probably either an upstream bug or a problem specific to Fedora. I have seen messages that crash alpine (or pine) in the past. Can you report this to the alpine mailing list? Attaching the full problematic email would be helpful if it's not confidential; if it is... well, you'll have to do the debugging. :)


At this point I'm thinking the selinux message is a red herring.
Comment 2 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2008-12-11 18:26:10 EST
Any luck with this, Mike? Does this also happen on that message in F10?
Comment 3 Mike McGrath 2008-12-11 19:08:17 EST
Honestly I've not seen it since I posted this report.  I also don't remember what message it was I was able to reproduce it with :-/  If you want to close it I'll reopen if it happens again.
Comment 4 Joshua Daniel Franklin 2008-12-12 11:04:39 EST
Well, I expected better of you, Mike. :) I'll close NOTABUG. FYI, if you know what box the message might be in you can page through and see if alpine crashes as it reads the headers.
