	Someone else pointed out a related problem with sendmail where
a local user can take advantage of the sendmail hole.  You probably
want to remove all references to tTd(0, 1) in the sendmail sources.
Its occurrences allow sendmail to run programs, append directly to
files (as recipients), or cause sendmail to include a list of names as
a mailing list (:include:).  All of these can be taken advantage of
with the particular debug option in question.  More than likely, you
wouldn't want the casual user to have access to any of these!!  -- Mel
