1. Are you sure the file (licinfo.txt) is _exactly_ the same on both
systems? (Try "file licinfo.txt" on both and compare the results.)

2. Are the locale settings the same on both systems?

3. Define unreadable. What _exactly_ is wrong with the email?

4. Perhaps the OpenSuse list would be a better place for this?
