Description Binand Sethumadhavan 2002-12-15 08:10:45 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1)

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 
occassions.

Typical output when I send a signal from another terminal to a running 
procmail:

binand@binand[~]:(11) procmail
procmail: Terminating prematurely
Segmentation fault (core dumped)


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


How reproducible:
Always

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.

Reproduced.

Sent a mail to the maintainer for feedback.

Comment 2 Jens Petersen 2004-01-06 08:00:00 UTC
This seems to be fixed when Debian's procmail_3.22-8.diff
is applied.

I'm adding that patch to procmail-3.22-12.
