The patch is very simple. In /usr/script/mu-atd, localize "add to queue"
segment and invert the "rm" row with the "cat" row, obtaining:
           echo "AT='$@'" > $SPOOL/$$
        echo "rm $SPOOL/$$" >> $SPOOL/$$
        cat >> $SPOOL/$$
        chmod +x $SPOOL/$$

In this way, the batch command firstly remove itself, then execute
your command. Is very strange, but in Linux a script can remove him file
still executing!


Mi sarebbe piaciuto concludere con un'affermazione positiva, ma
non me ne vengono in mente. Vanno bene due negative?
