BTW, Robert Grimm discovered an unrelated bug in fetchnews::store.c
a few days ago.  The fix for it is in the git-repo, but there's no
snapshot out yet.

I have to advise against using "leafnode-2.0.0.alpha20090324a+luascript".
It will mess up article headers in the news spool under certain

I'm not running Debian, on my arch-linux the lines mentioned by gcc in
your report are either empty or contain nothing suspicious.  Would it be
possible to run this command line with "-E" or "-save-temps"[1] to find
the offending line seen by the compiler?

The trouble is:  I cannot reproduce this and so far nobody else reported
this error.  But Matthias once needed to change the order in which
header files are included to fix a similar problem.  Maybe this has to
do with the shorthands for some "__attribute__" present in "script.h",
and if so, this problem should be easily fixable.

The following URL describes it pretty well:
