Here is the current situation we are dealing with:
Everytime you attempt to run pine, it will say
Mailbox is open by another process, access is read-only
Reading through all the FAQs and prior messages about this type of problem all
point at another instance of pine running. Well, this is after a clean boot...
and ps -aux reveals no copy of pine running.
Checking /var/spool/mail reveals nothing. No lock files or anything.
However, we do notice that /tmp now has a file .803.307
What is happening? We have removed this file, and everytime we run pine
this little file pops up.
If anyone can provide assistance, we would appreciate it. By the way, it does
this for every version of pine that we were able to compile on MkLinux DR-2.
