Subject: repl: -form argument does the wrong thing with relative paths
Date: Sat, 12 Apr 2003 22:03:25 +0100
Package: nmh
Version: 1.0.4+dev-20010317-1
Severity: normal

 repl does a chdir before opening the format file, thus:

repl -form ./foo

 (useful for testing)
 won't work, because it will try to open <currentmailbox>/./foo
rather than ./foo

A quick look at the code shows that this may be a bit tricky to fix.
It appears that there is a lot of abstractization that makes nailing
down where it looks for things and such a little tricky. I dunno if
I'll bother. I may promote this to wontfix.
