Are you sending email directly or using bug.report()? If you are using
bug.report(), what editor are you using? The reason I ask is that some editors
(e.g. nedit) spawn another process and return, in which case the Unix version of
bug.report() throws away everything you type and sends an almost empty message,
with no warning. This is a known, reported, bug. The fix is to add an argument
wait=TRUE as in the Windows version.
