Please reply to 'email@example.com' as my own domain is at the end of a connection
that has gone quite flakey (extremely volitile, 70+% packet loss) which they
can't have service crews out until Tuesday to correct.
For those of you on the list who are new to my problem, here are the details
(If you require past history I can send you previous e-mails).
I'm attempting to setup Majordomo 1.94.4 on an RH5.1 system. Sendmail 8.8.7,
Upon running 'wrapper config-test' it says all is fine and dandy (as a normal
user). Upon manually checking all the permissions multiple times, everything
checks out. There is a 'touched' file and a file containing e-mail addresses
in the 'lists' dir.
All of the aliases have been setup and confirmed by half a dozen people. The
majordomo.cf has been confirmed by two others.
Testing using 'echo 'lists' | mail majordomo' caused me to receive an error
message regarding 'Unknown mailer error 9' and a second message with only
'<<<< lists' or similar.
Upon going in to manually test it, I su'd to 'mail' and ran it all manually.
What follows is a description of the events occuring from this point on. All
help is greatly appreciated.

I'm an m4 kind of guy, have any clues how to add it to the mc file?
If it were just a question of the sendmail.cf I'd have done it awhile back. ;)

When I run it as either 'mail' or 'majordomo' I get:
Substitution loop at /usr/local/majordomo-1.94.4/majordomo line 177, <> chunk
When using the following test message:

From: Colin Cyr <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Line 177 of the code is the following substitution. Upon a looking at all the
code in this section, I personally can't see how this line or any lines in the
block/loop could cause this to loop.
s/^\s*//g; # strip leading whitespace
> Good luck! :)
Thanks, I'll need it.
