Executive summary: please let 1.2.53 through, I'll take
responsibility :)

I forgot to include the changelog in my last request:

It's long, but I've only added filters, except for the last three
entries. 1.2.53 is definitely fit for a freeze exception.

   * logcheck now chdir()s to /var/lib/logcheck before cleanup of the temporary
     directory. This should hopefully fix some of the "Check temporary
     directory" messages.
   * Check for existence of home directory of the system account. If it points
     to a non-existing directory, change it to /var/lib/logcheck. Also ignore
     the corresponding log entry by usermod.

These two were necessary to prevent logcheck failures when it
encountered a problem and couldn't dump a temporary file because it
had no home directory.

   * Modified the system account Gecos name to "logcheck system account".

And this one is just a cosmetic change over a previous version that
will only affect new installations.


Please do not send copies of list mail to me; I read the list!
