The img plugin causes a taint failure if one tries to link a scaled image, e.g.

[[!img  foo.png size=64x64]]

.ikiwiki.setup: Insecure dependency in mkdir while running with -T switch at /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.8/ line 360.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 5) line 109.

If one omits the size argument it works. And if it worked once the taint failure will not happen again unless one rm -r's the destdir.

Seen with ikiwiki 2.30

And what version of perl? See Insecure dependency in mkdir et al. Also, the debian build of ikiwiki has taint checking disabled to avoid this perl bug. Did you build your own? Set NOTAINT=1 when building.. --Joey

perl-5.8.8, I've created a package for openSUSE. Will file perl bug there as well then.

I've gone ahead and turned off taint checking by default now. done
