Description rastor 1999-03-25 14:00:04 UTC
After a clean 5.9 install fetchmailconf cannot be used
because at the startup screen it crashes when one of the
buttons (novice or expert) is pushed, producing the
following error:

X Error of failed request:  BadValue (integer parameter out
of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request:  12 (X_ConfigureWindow)
  Value in failed request:  0x0
  Serial number of failed request:  365
  Current serial number in output stream:  367

The same error occurs regardless of whether I am logged in
as root or as a user.

this has been fixed in fetchmail-4.7.0-3.  Additionally, fetchmailconf
has been broken into a separate package which depends on python and
