WGFILE not being set breaks send_message

Reported by: alexp Owned by:
Priority: normal Milestone: Fall 2009 Release
Component: -- Keywords:
Cc: Fixed in version:
Upstream bug:


3rd party software uses send_message in the swtools locker. It breaks if WGFILE isn't set (which it isn't). We should fix send_message, or set WGFILE (though that might be hard to do for people not using Athena dotfiles who might still use 3rd party software).

I have an issue with WGFILE on Athena 10
it doesn't seem to be defined
This wouldn't be an issue except that part of the messaging system I
use for locker software uses a binary "send_message" that no longer
sends messages via zephyr on Athena 10 as it did on Athena 9.4

Garry has fixed "send_message" so unless there's some other reason WGFILE
should be defined on Athena 10 machines this can be considered closed.
