Re: Processed: dpkg bug severities



In message <handler.s.C.8735057486831.transcript@bugs.debian.org>, Ian Jackson 
included the header line:
> Cc: ...,
>     Klee Dienes and Ian Jackson (dpkg #10049 #10259 #1037 #10433 #10452 #10494 #11047 #11073 #11074 #11228 #11341 #11868 #11992 #12187 #1399 #1555 #1797 #1921 #2701 #2894 #2904 #2911 #2929 #3170 #3225 #3406 #3991 #4093 #4319) <dpkg-maint@chiark.greenend.org.uk>

This line produced an error when fetchmail downloaded my mail:

Klee Dienes and Ian Jackson <dpkg-maint@chiark.greenend.org.uk>(dpkg #10049 
#10259 #1037 #10433 #104...992 #12187 #1399 #1555 #1797 #1921 #2701 #2894 
#2904 #2911 #2929 #3170 #3225 #3406 #3991 #4093 #4319... Unbalanced '('

#2904 #2911 #2929 #3170 #3225 #3406 #3991 #4093 #4319... Unbalanced '('

which came (I think) from sendmail.

So it appears that Ian Jackson's mailer is producing header lines that cannot
be parsed by a receiving sendmail.

My sendmail version is 8.8.6-4

     Make it idiot-proof, and someone will breed a better idiot.
