bug#8531: 24.0.50;


From: samer
Subject: bug#8531: 24.0.50;
Date: Mon, 08 Dec 2014 16:15:17 -0800
User-agent: Roundcube Webmail/0.9.5

Forgot to CC debbugs in my previous email:

This is the full patch, generated with magit because I couldn't commit this to a private branch (I get "Empty change log entry" even though I've changed both ChangeLog files. I don't know awk, do you have any idea why I would get that error?)

Best,
Samer
