Default Is there a workaround for bug #578937

My mail clients on my network are all reporting a strange FAM/Gamin
initialization error when they access a mailbox for the first time. It
appears to be bug #578937.


I can't find anyone talking about it on this mailing list - but this
would seem to be a major inconvenience for anyone using courier-imap as
their imap server.


Is there any work around to avoid it happening.

The DD should apply the patch and release 0.64.2-2.

We use courier-imap and have courier-base 0.64.2-1 installed but
don't seem to have that problem. What's a reproducer?

I am not sure what you mean by this - but I am using Thunderbird on
Linux and have used Outlook on Windows 7, and my wife uses Thunderbird
on Windows XP, and they all throw up this error.



Step by step, how do I reproduce this error?

I don't know precisely. I have had, for a long time, a home server
running various versions of Debian - for at least the last 6 months it
has been running Squeeze. I have Exim4 delivering mail to Maildirs in
my (two - private and business e-mail addresses) accounts and my wife's
(one) account. A .forward filter in my account delivers the mail to
various "subdirectories" of the main inbox.


I have courier-imap (both the plain and ssl versions) sitting there
ready to take imap requests for this mail.


On my Desktop - also running Debian Squeeze - I have (also for a
reasonably long time) Icedove (aka Thunderbird) trying to collect mail
from my two accounts from both an inbox and quite a few subdirectories.


Over the past couple of weeks, as soon as I start Icedove it puts up a
dialog alert box with this message in it. It repeats it three or four
times and then stops (I am guessing it is something to do with the
number of subdirectories that I have asked it to check automatically for
new mail).


It seems to repeat it when I first select a subdirectory to read mail if
it isn't one which it should check automatically. If I leave it and
select it a second time no further message appears to be generated.



On one of my Laptops - running Windows 7 and Microsoft Outlook, I
connect to my business account, and Outlook pops up a dialog box saying
the server wishes to inform me of ... I can't say how long since its 3
or 4 months since I last used it.


My wife runs Thunderbird on a Windows XP PC. She experiences the same
as me

I should add (because I forgot it before), that I have an iPhone
contacting the business account via imap-ssl. That doesn't seem to put
up any error message

Hmmm. Just occurred to me that maybe I don't have fam installed.
<pause> Yup, not installed. gamin 0.1.10-2+b1 is, though.


Also, Postfix feeds emails to maildrop which then filters them to
the correct folder, and I tell Icedove to "Check for new messages
every 2 minutes" and also for certain folders set the "Check this
folder for new messages" property.

Bingo

libfam0 had been installed automatically by courier-imap and/or courier-base

I manually switched over the libgamin0 and the problem has gone away.

You should add that work-around to the bug report...
