Description of problem:
when a signal is received, procmail dumps core.
This happens for I think all fatal signals procmail handles.
I tested with SIGINT, SIGTERM and SIGHUP. Procmail dumped core on all three
Typical output when I send a signal from another terminal to a running
procmail: Terminating prematurely
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run procmail from command line (with or without an rc file)
2. press control-C for SIGINT
3. procmail will dump core, with the above output
Actual Results: lots of core.$$ files in my home directory :)
Expected Results: procmail should have performed a clean shutdown.
Sent a mail to the maintainer for feedback.
This seems to be fixed when Debian's procmail_3.22-8.diff
I'm adding that patch to procmail-3.22-12.
