Subject compiling: Illegal octal digit '9' ignored...
Date Fri, 23 Jul 2010 16:17:09 GMT
I'm seeing warnings like this when I run sa-compile:

Illegal octal digit '9' ignored at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/
line 1083, <$fh> line 5645.
Illegal octal digit '9' ignored at /usr/local/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.10.1/Mail/SpamAssassin/Plugin/
line 1083, <$fh> line 6449.

line 1083, <$fh> line 7229.

I've done some digging and it looks like the rule2xs() function is trying to parse stuff like

r \2512009 microsoft | unsubscribe | more newsletters | privac:FB_SOFTTABS __FB_BCs __SEEK_YRQYH9,[l=1]
r copyright \2512009 by nacha - the electronic payments associ:LOTTO_AGENT,[l=1] T_LOTTO_DEPT,[l=1]
__ATM_CARD,[l=1] __FEES,[l=1] __LOTTO_WIN_01,[l=1] __SEEK_VZ7OQ6,[l=1] __YOUR_FUND,[l=1]

I think these are coming from lines like this:

sought_rules_yerp_org/ __SEEK_YRQYH9  /\x{a9}2009 Microsoft \| Unsubscribe
\| More Newsletters \| Privacy/
sought_rules_yerp_org/ __SEEK_VZ7OQ6  /Copyright \x{a9}2009 by NACHA - The
Electronic Payments Association/

So the year occurs right after the octal escape code for the copyright symbol, and the fixup_re
code is assuming the "2009" is part of the octal escape.

I suspect this error prevents the rule from being used.  Is there a fix for this?
