Description of problem:
A bug in the config parsing leads to a endless loop when it encounters queue groups defined in the cf. Fixed upstream in 5.6
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. define sendmail queue group in sendmail.cf
add to sendmail.mc
QUEUE_GROUP(`mqueue', `F=f, I=1m, R=10')dnl
make && make restart
2. attempt to start snmpd
It should start.
Patch is back ported from 5.6 and appears to fix the bug, allowing snmpd to start when sendmail queue groups are defined.
