bug#4294: 23.1; gnus fails with .authinfo containing default entry

From: Joe Casadonte
Subject: bug#4294: 23.1; gnus fails with .authinfo containing default entry
Date: Sun, 30 Aug 2009 14:03:07 -0400
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/23.1 (windows-nt)

Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I'm upgrading from Emacs 22.2.1:

> GNU Emacs 22.2.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2008-03-26 on RELEASE

to Emacs 23.1.1 and gnus version 5.11 to 5.13 (which was bundled with
the new version of Emacs).  My .authinfo file contained several entries
for different email accounts and a 'default' entry which had info for my
news server.  It worked fine with gnus 5.11, but fails on the new gnus.

If I remove the 'default' entry, everything works as I expect it to.  In
looking at the code, I think the culprit is the dolist's in
`netrc-machine-user-or-password', as there's no way to break out of the
looping if you've found a match.  So, I moved the 'default' entry to the
top of the file, figuring that it would be over-ruled by a later
matching entry.  That did not work, though I don't understand why.  Only
removing the 'default' entry entirely allows my mail accounts to pick up
the correct login info.

If Emacs crashed, and you have the Emacs process in the gdb debugger,
please include the output from the following gdb commands:
    `bt full' and `xbacktrace'.
If you would like to further debug the crash, please read the file
c:/product/emacs-23.1/etc/DEBUG for instructions.
