Description Phil Smith 2009-06-12 18:03:53 EDT
Description of problem:
flyspell-mode fails to work in mail-mode and the error "Error in post-command-hook: (void-variable message-signature-separator)"

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emacs junk.txt
2. M-x mail-mode
3. M-x flyspell-mode
4. type junk words
5. flyspell doesn't work
Actual results:
flyspell doesn't work

Expected results:
flyspell should work

Additional info:
flyspell works when not in mail-mode

If I put
    (defvar message-signature-separator "^-- *$" "\
    Regexp matching the signature separator.")
in .emacs, it works.
So it looks like message-signature-separator is not defined anywhere.
And a grep of the *.el supports this.

Opened emacs bug:
Response: "This was fixed last year (will be in 23.1)."
Comment 2 Phil Smith 2009-09-16 04:27:29 EDT
Yum update updated emacs to 23.1 and problem fixed.
Can close.
Comment 3 Daniel Novotny 2009-09-16 05:07:05 EDT
OK, closing
