Subject: maildir-utils: ignores --clearlinks
Date: Thu, 22 Apr 2010 15:44:22 -0400
[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]
Package: maildir-utils
Version: 0.7-1
Severity: normal

The --clearlinks option doesn't seem to do anything.

If I run "mu find xx -l ~/.mu/results --clearlinks", the previously
existing links are still there, mixing up the search results from two
different searches. If I repeat the same search twice, mu even warns
about the links existing already.

I have the same problem. I've filled the upstream ticket with patch as
the problem is in use of stat() instead of lstat().
