A bug fix to a very old bug broke some databases.
We’re reverting the bug fix now, and restarting all servers.
Technical details for those who care: it was due to signed ‘char’ comparisons on messageids and 8 bit characters being present in some messageids, which they shouldn’t
Update (by robm at Tue Nov 29 22:20 UTC)
The visible effect of this bug for users would have been:
- Some messages would have been delivered multiple times
- Pop Links would have been reporting delivery failures
The bug has been fixed.
