Dear Bug Team!

I'm pretty sure I was just opening a new file using C-x C-f.  I had
the buffer open for less than a minute before the crash.  SUSE 10.3
was recently installed on our computers, and I switched from emacs to
xemacs since after the upgrade I can't open emacs in a separate window
for reasons that remain somewhat mysterious.  xemacs has crashed a few
times in the past few days, but this is the first bug I've reported.  

There's no core file in either the directory from which I started
xemacs or in my home directory.  

Lisp backtrace follows:

Defaulting to the GNU Emacs-derived `sendmail.el' mail client. This facility,
while part of base XEmacs, is heinously underfeatured, and not going to get
better in the medium term. We include it so that bug reports work without
packages; we suggest that you choose and/or install one of the other mail
clients from packages if you're doing something other than M-x
report-xemacs-bug , or even if you are reporting bugs regularly.

To choose a package from those installed, click on "Options" ->
"Internet" -> "Compose Mail With ..." and decide on one from the
list. Gnus and VM are full-featured and have active user communities.

To disable this warning and stick with the old behavior, you can explicitly
initialize `mail-user-agent' to 'sendmail-user-agent .
