Help, I get flooded! [Bug#71427: mysql-server]


I (aka ch@debian.org) get flooded by identical copies of the mail attached.
I count about 40 mails during the weekend and I get a new one every couple
of hours. Sadly I cannot reach the author as he supplied a wrong email 
address. I tried some variations of it and mailed the postmaster as well
as postmaster@debian.org (in case that there're more mails in the queue)
but none seems to have effort.

Any ideas beside simply ignoring/filter them?

Package: mysql-server
Version: 3.23.22b-2
Severity: normal


I dunno if this is an upstream problem, but here is the fix for my system:

  in line 94 of the script safe_mysqld, I remove a hyphen ("-").

also this could be some kinda wierdness from my system, anyway since I found
a fix, I thought I'd share.
