Subject: obexftp returns incorrect exit code
Date: Mon, 5 Oct 2009 01:36:39 +0200
Package: obexftp
Version: 0.23-1

I found that upgrading obexftp from 0.22-1+b1 to 0.23-1 broke obexftp-frontend.

I found the cause is that command:
obexftp --usb 0 --chdir / --list
in both versions (0.22 and 0.23) returns correct (and identical)
listing of files on my cellphone, however, the 0.22 version returns 0
as exit code of the process, while 0.23 version returns 255. As common
convention is that exit code==0 -> succes, exit code !=0 -> failure
and obexftp-frontent relies on that, that causes obexftp not to work
correctly with obexftp-frontend.
