Subject: [gentoo-user] MAILPATH stopped working after update to Bash 4.0
Date: Tue, 26 May 2009 16:15:13
Message-Id: gvh4fq$ivd$
1 I have:
3 MAILPATH="/home/me/.maildir/new?You have new mail."
6 Bash 3.2 was correctly telling me about new mail arriving. However,
7 after I updated to Bash 4.0, I constantly get a "You have new mail"
8 message every minute even though I actually don't have new mail. Has
9 the mail notification feature changed in Bash 4.0? I can't see anything
10 relevant in the man page or NEWS file.
