I use fetchmail myself, so I took a look at the bug report. Apparently
it is against the slink version of fetchmail (4.4.7-1) rather than the
hamm version of fetchmail (4.3.9-1). Hamm's fetchmail does not have this
bug (tho I'm prone to all this a "feature" myself ;), so it shouldn't be
on this list.

Can anyone think of an automated way to weed out bug reports on versions
which haven't been released into hamm from the release-critical list? A
quick fix would be to modify the priority of the bug report, but that
would be The Wrong Thing.
