Bug in rmail

Hi

I recently tried to move from emacs20 to emacs21.
I have the following in my .emacs file.

(setq mail-archive-file-name "~/email/sentmail")

It works perfectly with emacs20.

But with emacs 21 the sentmail summary does not include the destination.
It leaves it blank.

For example the following lines appear in the sentmail-summery.

   1  25-Mar          to: address@hidden  [52] awk
   2   1-Apr        to: address@hidden  [21] test this editor
   3   1-Apr                             [17] this test to niertit

The first two email's were sent with emacs20.
The last was sent using emacs 21.

I have included the sentmail file for you perusal.

Jaime

The following program should do what you wanted.

Frank

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

#!/usr/bin/awk -f

BEGIN { FS = "::"; file = "./letter"; header = "./header"; i = 0; }

/^#/ { next }

/::/{

i = i + 1
name = $1
destination = $2

gsub(/^[ \t]+/,"",name);        gsub(/[ \t]+$/,"",name)
gsub(/^[ \t]+/,"",destination); gsub(/[ \t]+$/,"",destination)

printf("\r%8d",i)

system("echo -e " "\"To: " name "\" > " header) 
system("cat " header " " file " | mail " destination)

}

END { printf("\n") }

As is evident the last entry is missing the to: field in the summary.

I would like to switch to emacs21 but this makes my summary file nearly
useless.
  
I am running debian 3.0 with kernel 2.4.20.

I hope you can help.
