Thanks for the note. We (the exmh developers) have been working on a
fix; a new version (which will be called exmh-2.3) will be released
probably today. I'll be updating the port as soon as this happens. If
there isn't something put up by late today, I'll fix the port with a
patch from exmh's CVS repository.
More information is at:
It would have been really nice if the person who originally reported
this bug to BUGTRAQ had bothered to contact *any* of the exmh developers
before posting to said list. Apparently, nowadays, saying "I'M 3L33T
CUZ I F0UND A H0LE 1ST" is more important than giving developers a
chance to actually fix problems in their software.
PS. Yes, I should have put the patch into the port sooner. I had
thought we would have cut a new exmh release earlier, which would have
made this a moot point. One way or another FreeBSD will see the fix
