Under Fedora 8 to fix this issue the logwatch.pl script must be 
modified. This should be reported back up to Fedora. Basically you need 
to move the ENV kludge forward. Line 63 is about right and it should 
look like this

#Honor ENV MAILTO as default if exists -mgt
if ($ENV{'MAILTO'}) {
     $Config{'mailto'} = $ENV{'MAILTO'};
} else {
     $Config{'mailto'} = "root";

Then remove the other ENV setting at around line 362 just remove the 
whole conditional.

After that it should work right. I'm going to fix what we have in CVS also.
