• Preserve LANG, LANGUAGE, and LC_* environment variables from the parent process's environment, thus initializing maildrop's locale to the default system locale.

• When using system authentication on platforms where the mail directory does not use the sticky bit, use groupid set by the set-group-id bit on the binary executable, if any.

*** NOTE: more information is provided in the INSTALL and UPGRADE files in the tarball. This change results (only on some maildrop configurations as discussed further in these files) in child processes started by maildrop running with a different effective group id than in previous versions of maildrop. In previous versions of maildrop the effective gid of child processes may have been misleading: it was inherited from maildrop's parent process, rather than what was set by maildrop binary's setgid permissions. This change will use the group id as set on the maildrop's binary's permissions.
