Comment 2 Kyle M Hall 2012-06-18 18:01:40 UTC
The variable $i was being re-used and overwriting the necessary value that was being passed to a subroutine. Renaming $i to $j fixed it. I also added an extra safety check within parse_letter that would also have prevented this bug.

I am changing this from "enhancement" to "blocker."  It is a pretty important bug.  No overdue notices are going out for libraries on 3.8.1 at all (neither email nor print).

[SIGNED-OFF] Bug 8267 - Overdue notices not working

Without patch:

Used letter corresponds to the number of issues in notice triggers:
1 issue => First trigger letter
2 issues => Second trigger letter
4 issues and more => Error: no more than 3 triggers =)

Patch fix the problem.

Comment 7 Chris Cormack 2012-06-23 08:29:48 UTC
This bug is also a cogent reminder to have use warnings; and check logs.

Since this would have been warning all over the place about $i being redefined. 
Pushed to 3.8.x will be in 3.8.3
