  While things have quieted down since they released RedHat 6.0, this
question has been asked, and answered, sometimes three times in the same
day!  My stock reply follows:

 There is a bug in the Perl distribution of RedHat 5.2, which makes
Majordomo and some CGI scripts buggy. Just take a look at Red Hat support:

There is a rpm patch at 

Update your system with

     rpm -Uvh perl-5.004m7-1.i386.rpm

This is documented in the latest FAQ, which is _not_ the version in the
majordomo 1.94.4 distribution, but is much more frequently updated at

Hope this helps,

Microsoft has just announced it is renaming Windows NT version 5 to

Is that the ultimate millennium bug or what?
