'vacation start' however creates a .forward file that redirects
mails into the vacation shell script instead of vacation.exe binary.
(Version 2.99.45) This is due a patch at the end of 'case' command:
#exec $realprog $@ <------- this was probably good
echo "$0: Wrong usage!"
echo " $0 $@"
echo "Parameter is either: start or stop!"
Then 'vacation username' returns an error message.
# echo "$user," '"|/usr/local/mail/bin/vacation' $user'"' > \
echo "$user," '"|$realprog' $user'"' > \
