Subject: crm114: mailreaver.crm occasionally fails; unable to read-open priolist.mfp
Date: Sun, 20 Jan 2008 23:12:20 -0800
Package: crm114
Version: 20070810-3
Severity: normal

I use getmail to grab mail from my ISP's IMAP server.  I filter it through crm114's mailreaver with this stanza:

[filter-1]
type = Filter_external
path = /home/josh/.crm114/mailreaver.crm
arguments = ("-u","/home/josh/.crm114")
exitcodes_drop = ()

Occasionally, mailreaver fails like this:

Filter error (filter Filter_external mailreaver.crm (allow_root_commands="False", arguments="('-u', '/home/josh/.crm114')", command="mailreaver.crm", exitcodes_drop="()", exitcodes_keep="('0',)", group="None", ignore_stderr="False", path="/home/josh/.crm114/mailreaver.crm", unixfrom="False", user="None") returned 1 (ERROR: mailreaver.crm broke.  Here's the error\: 
ERROR: 
/usr/bin/crm: *ERROR* 
 For some reason, I was unable to read-open the file named  :*:fileprefix:priolist.mfp

)

However, ~/.crm114/priolist.mfp exists, and has no permission issues.
I don't know how or why this fails.

No, because re-running getmail again fetches those same mails and runs
them through mailreaver again with no issue.  So I don't think the bug
necessarily relates to mail content.

Well, I googled a bit and found the following:

http://archive.netbsd.se/?ml=crm114-general&a=2007-07&t=4765896

Does it help to find out what's wrong?

I've been seeing this problem; it started for me over the past week or two.

I haven't changed my copy of crm114 in that time, but I have done a
regular regimin of apt-get updates for testing.  The only interesting
data point I have is that it happened after a kernel upgrade; the host
is Xen 3.0 and is running "2.6.18-53.1.13.el5xen" when it was previously
running "2.6.16.29-xen".  I cannot change the kernel.

I followed the suggestions at the end of the thread and see this when I place
the logging right around line 485 or so, before the comment "Not a learn, so
it's a CLASSIFY job.  Maybe full, maybe stats_only.":

  :add_extra_stuff:=-no-

Which doesn't tell me much.  The message that triggered this doesn't do so
repeatedly; my solution for the past few weeks has been to just run the mail
filter again.  This does not happen frequently; I would guess on the
order of once out of every 500 messages, which means a few times a day.

I am using version 20070810-3, and have been since shortly after it hit
testing; this one came out of nowhere.

Thank you, Alec, for an additional report.

Alec and Josh, I've just uploaded current snapshot of crm114
(20080315-1) to experimental.  Before I report the problem upstream,
would you please try the current version when it hits archives?

Regards,

Milan Zamazal

I'll give it a shot this weekend and let you know how it goes.

Thank you, perhaps you might help by talking to the upstream authors
now.  The issue has been opened today by another user on the crm114
mailing list and the upstream authors have no clue what might be wrong.

You may want to watch the thread starting with

I don't know if upstream managed to fix this, but here appears to be a
fixed version:

  http://hebbut.net/Public.Offerings/crm114.html
  http://hebbut.net/Public.Offerings/crm114/20080525/index.html

Supposedly these versions work better in 64bit systems, though I don't
have tried them yet.

Thanks for the pointer.  After lenny is out, I'll try to review what's
available and to make a newer version of the Debian package.

Is the bug still present in the current crm114 version in the Debian

I no longer use crm114, and don't plan to change that, so I can't test
this issue.  Hopefully one of the other people who encountered this
problem can help.
