I provide hypertext versions of three different mailing lists, and
just noticed that the message number assignments seem to be
accelerating! For example, in one list
(http://www.itsonline.com/itsl/threads.html) the message number
jumped from msg00074.html to msg00638.html in one two-day period!
Any idea of what's going on here? Admittedly, I haven't cleared out
my "mbox" in a while, and MHonArc runs from a cron job.
[I hope I remember correctly]
I think you trigger a mhonarc V1.1 bug with the -add option (sorry have
no vanila v1.1 around anymore): Assume you have a mbox with n messages
and the mhonarc seq is from 0 - (n-1). Now one new message gets added to
the mbox and you run mhonarc again with:
mhonarc -add -mbox mbox-file
The new message gets the sequence number 2n-1 instead of n.
(This is fixed in mhonarc v1.2 beta.)
Thanks for any ideas.
