bug#2428: 23.0.90; sendmail-send-it not checking for call-process-region

From: tcr
Subject: bug#2428: 23.0.90; sendmail-send-it not checking for call-process-region's return value properly
Date: Sat, 21 Feb 2009 23:45:02 +0100

`sendmail-send-it' invokes `call-process-region' but doesn't check for

  Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Format specifier doesn't match argument 
    format("Sending...failed with exit value %d" "Broken pipe")
    apply(format ("Sending...failed with exit value %d" "Broken pipe"))
    error("Sending...failed with exit value %d" "Broken pipe")
    call-interactively(mail-send-and-exit nil nil)

The following patch fixes that
