Well, nothing to be afraid of, it simply logs what it does (that should be
done only whith debugging, not through normal sysloging, I wasn't aware of
that (I only used it lately), however I changed that for next version.

The code that does that logging is activated if you compile whith -DMACHIGAI
(in tx and JE versions) and it is intended to do the following:

/* ### Modified by T.Tanaka on 22 Mar 1995 */
/* if val contains no letters, ignore it */
/* this change prevents messages that contain */
/* first name + ':', say "Bill:" in the first */
/* line from being tossed as bad messages */

(that code is in rfcmsg.c)


A bientôt, Pablo Saratxaga
