ah, wait i see you add a clamav: root to /etc/aliases... works fine except for those of us using MTAs which don't support /etc/aliases. i'm satisfied enough making a local mod to my own crontab then... go ahead and close this out, sorry. -dean -- To UNSUBSCRIBE, email to [EMAIL PROTECTED]

Bug#323543: use /dev/log for syslog logging

i'm pretty sure this is because bash and tcsh create their own process group at startup, and zsh doesn't... so zsh shares the same process group as the su process. suppose we have this pstree fragment: zsh(4782,dean)---su(4788,root)---zsh(4789) both pids 4788 and 4789 have pgrp 4788.
