Okay, I've figured out where this problem lies, but don't have time to
fix it correctly right now. Someone care to take a whack?
Basically, allowing an approval format like:
blah blah blah
breaks approvals of this form:
Subject: Re: approval required
blah blah blah
and the reason that the 'approve' program works is because it sends a
message out directly via sendmail, like so:
% /usr/lib/sendmail guest
Received: by slurp.neu.sgi.com (950413.SGI.8.6.12/911001.SGI)
for test id RAA24569; Wed, 3 Jul 1996 17:08:09 +0200
Date: Wed, 3 Jul 1996 17:08:09 +0200
From: guest (Guest Account)

The easiest fix is to disallow the first form of approval -- if an
approval line is found in the body of the message, what follows is the
header of the message to be approved. This was broke under 1.93
anyway -- how much do people care?
Along with this fix, I'd like to eliminate the parse_header call in
resend and use the ParseMailHeader routine that's in majordomo.pl --
it seems much cleaner. Had I known about it when I rewrote resend, I
would have used it.
I won't be able to pay attention to majordomo for at least 10 days due
to work related travel. Since several folks are hung up on this bug,
perhaps someone can step up to the plate?
