Hack-of-the-day: mail_warnings module


What you do (assuming you are running a Linux system with glibc 2.1,
since this module requires it) is:

- Download and untar the file
- 'cd mail_warnings; make'
- 'export LD_PRELOAD=`pwd`/mail_warnings.so'
- 'export MAIL_WARNINGS=your.email@address'
- Run GNOME stuff.

Warnings and errors will get emailed to the specified e-mail address, and
for fatal errors you'll get a stack trace as well.

This may be helpful for people who are reporting bugs, as well as hackers
wanting to make sure that their code is bug-free.
