Description Paul Raj Khangure 2001-07-23 09:57:10 UTC
Description of Problem:

The new elm package elm-2.5.5-0.62 breaks the bouncing of messages via the
b command.

How Reproducible:

By attempting to bounce a message.

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Open elm. 
2.  Bounce a message to a valid email address ( b , enter address , y )
3.  Note brief error before screen rewrites incorrectly.

Actual Results:

Screen rewrites incorrectly, over writing error message. 
Error message is:

Resending mail...sh: syntax error near unexpected token `(n'
sh: -c: line 1: `(/usr/sbin/sendmail -oi -oem -om "user@domainname.net"
);/bin/rm -f (null))&'

user@domainname.net is a valid email address.

The message is not bounced.

Expected Results:

The email should be bounced, and the screen redraw correctly.

Additional Information:
To get the actuall error message, I had to pipe the output to a file, so it
wouldn't be written over. I did:

elm > elmtrace 2>&1

Then hit b to bounce, entered the address, y to bounce, q to quit, n to not
move to received.

System is RedHat 6.2, new elm package, sendmail-8.9.3-20.
Has been reproduced on another 6.2 box running the same packages.

Worked before the update.

Should be fixed in elm-2.5.5-5

Comment 2 Gilbert E. Detillieux 2001-07-31 22:27:13 UTC
Can this fixed release be made available as updates for supported Red Hat Linux
versions (6.2, 7.1 at least)?

Given that the issued update packages are broken, the right thing to do would be
to reissue a corrected update, IMHO.
