I just did the exim4 security update and it broke my mail system
because of the new restrictions on the config file mode.
2011-03-11 15:49:23 Exim configuration file /etc/exim4/exim4.conf--sauce has the wrong owner, group, or mode
This is not a reasonable restriction. If the file is in the right
place then exim4 ought to honour whatever permissions it has; anything
else is a stupid-band-aid.
Also this is not documented in the changelog nor exim4 manpage.
