After the last security update some misbehavior was found by the community and
discussed on the public mailings lists. It seems that two problems were

1. (from opensuse-security list) - Destroy config
Can some one explain the reason behind modifying the
/etc/sysconfing/postfix in a such a way that the custom additions that
were added to the above mentioned file with POSTFIX_ADD_ have been
removed after the update. Thank god I had set MAIL_CREATE_CONFIG="no" so
/etc/postfix/ is not altered and the mail system is working. But
now I have to start editing allover again. What an update


2. This bug should be fixed by this update. But it seems that it is still
present (bug #557239).

(from opensuse-de list)
Hallo Liste,
Seit dem heutigen Update kann ich das locale Postfach nicht mehr öffnen.
Bekomme folgende Fehlermeldung in PIM-Kmail.:
Fehler beim Öffnen von /var/spool/mail/heinz. Entweder handelt es sich nicht
um einen gültigen Maildir-Ordner oder Sie verfügen nicht über die nötigen
Ordner /var/spool/mail/heinz kann nicht geöffnet werden

ls -al /var/spool/mail/heinz
-rw------- 1 heinz users 755 15. Feb 12:45 /var/spool/mail/heinz

Summary - translation: After the last update I can't open my local mail box by
my mail client: "Can't open /var/spool/mail/heinz. Maybe it is not a valid
maildir directory or you have no rights."

This is a regression. A new update is needed here.
