Patches

As the freeze for Debian sarge slowly approaches I want to make sure
the Dovecot packages are in as good condition as possible.  I see there
have been a number of patches since 0.99.10.  I have added the following
patches:

* segfault when user home directory is empty
* Proper PAM service name
* Make suid work on 2.6 kernels

Any other patches thatI ought to add.  Or better yet, will there be a
0.99.11 soon?

The only other patch we're running is the one by Bernard Blackham 
(it's in the list archives) so that "Deleted" and "Draft" messages 
are handled properly in mbox files. It's a fairly important patch, 
and it'd be really great if it was in the Debian package.

Cheers
Grahame

Timo clarified that the patch was only necessary for mboxes, not
maildirs so part of it wasn't applied. Attached is the correct patch
for mboxes only. Without it, users will get very confused very
quickly so it'd be good to see it in the Debian package. :)

For new installations, it's fine, but if you upgrade to a version
with this patch, users will discover all their Draft messages as
Deleted and all their Deleted messages as Draft. I have a small
utility to reverse these flags in an mbox if anybody is interested.

Thanks,

Bernard.

Maybe it's time for 0.99.10.1 with all the small fixes.. 0.99.11 is
still waiting for the mbox code to get fixed.

I'd definitely consider this to be a good idea, even if I do not depend on it 
if Jaldhar adds all fixes manually back to the Debian package. ;)
