I've recently moved my majordomo lists to a new server running CentOS 5.4.
Majordomo made the transition well enough, except for one problem that I
am having with digests.
The incoming messages are correctly written to the digest work directory,
but when the digest is created, the first three files are routinely
ignored, and the digest is built from messages 004 upward. After that,
each message to the list is sent to the digest list individually,
presumably because it's over a day older than the 001 message.
Manually clearing the digest work directory doesn't fix the problem;
the messages start getting written to the directory from 001 as expected,
then behave as above.
I migrated my server by rsyncing the /usr/local/majordomo and
/usr/local/majordomo-work directories to the new server and recompiling
wrapper. Overall it seems to be fine. The non-digest lists work as
expected, it's just the digestion that is the issue. This is happening on
both the lists I have digests for, though one is not terribly active so
I don't know if its "breaking point" is the 003 message or not.
Has anyone seen this behavior before? Does anyone know if there's a
message counter variable stored somewhere that I don't know about that
came over with the migration?
Thanks in advance for any clues toward solving this issue.
