User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 4.0) Build Identifier: Bugzilla 2.16.1 If a new user signs up the database initializes the mentioned field with a NULL value. As a result the "ExcludeSelf" flag is not set. So the user gets mail notification about his own actions. When visiting userprefs.cgi, the corresponding checkbox defaults to checked and the database is updated. So the behavior changes if the user first visits the settings. Maybe depending on bug 128422. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create new user account 2. Look at database: profiles.emailflags = NULL 3. If possible: Change a bug which is assigned to the new user under the new user 4. User gets notification 5. Look at prefs/email: Only email me reports of changes made by other people is CHECKED. Don't submit the page! 6. Look again at database: profiles.emailflags = ExcludeSelf~on~emailOwnerRemoveme... Actual Results: After first time viewing the userprefs.cgi everything is normal. Expected Results: New user profile should match default userprefs.cgi or mailer should assume same default on "NULL" as userprefs.
The same problem exists on this installation of Bugzilla (2.17.1). I got the notification mailing after submitting the bug report. Now I visited the email preferences and hope that no notification arrives after submitting this comment...
OK, no notification for last entry. Added dependencies to bugs mentioning similar behavior but closed because of reproducibility. Again: Problem clears itself after first visiting the userprefs.cgi.
the email guys deal with this...
but it's a dupe. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 108870 ***
