Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: evolution

I'm not sure if this should be reported as an Evolution bug or a
bogofilter one. I installed bogofilter in my laptop (with a fresh
install of Edgy) in order  to use it with Evolution. I don't know
exactly how, I ended up with bogofilter-sqlite, the sqlite version,
whose binary is /usr/bin/bogofilter-sqlite.

I spent hours trying to find out why on earth Evolution was ignoring
bogofilter altogether (i.e., mi ~/.bogofilter/wordlist.db won't be
touched even when I marked mail as junk manually), until I found out
running Evolution from the command line that it was expecting to find

I made a link from bogofilter-sqlite to bogofilter and everything seems to work, but:
 - Evolution should inform with an alert, warning or something that a regular user can see that a file is not being found, instead of failing silently;
 - Either Evolution's bogofilter plugin should be smarter about which program to run (i.e., it should know that bogofilter-sqlite exists), or if bogofilter-sqlite is meant to be a replacement for bogofilter, the installer should create the corresponding link (actually, I can do "man bogofilter" but not "man bogofilter-sqlite" for instance, so it seems that not putting a link from bogofilter-sqlite to bogofilter is a bug anyway)

** Affects: evolution (Ubuntu)
