Debtags cron script recursion

Bug #190156 reported by Volker Müller on 2008-02-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
debtags (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: debtags

In the cron script /etc/cron.daily/debtags an explicit setting of the PATH variable is missing. If the global PATH has the form PATH=.:/usr/bin ..., then
the script generates an endless recursion.

Simple solution: set the PATH variable at the start of the script.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 8.10 or 9.04?
