The install script creates a hash that is supposed to be secret, but it's not quite super secret enough. Ideally it should use something like as part of the hash to make it harder (near impossible) to calculate.

apparently "uniqid(mt_rand, TRUE)" is not really the right thing to do.

#1261532: Error on new update install

@pwolanin, what was your intent here?

Better patch that uses COALESCE for non-pgsql since that's more standard that IFNULL and uppercases SQL functions for readability.

Priority:Normal» Critical

Bumping to critical as this prevents the module from being installed properly.

Also, it should be possible to do this if we nest CONCAT() statements using two arguments per call - then it's 100% DBTNG compatible and we don't have to special-case for PostgreSQL.

Great. I feel like nesting concats is ugly enough that it offsets portability.

#7 didn't work perfectly b/c it leaves us with the same salt for notifications on the same node.

Attached version adds cid to provide even more uniqueness.

I get the following error message when the module is enabled on drupal 7.8. I followed the link from

Notice: Use of undefined constant mt_rand - assumed 'mt_rand' in comment_notify_install()

Can someone tell me if the patch above is the fix to problem? If so could someone tell me how to apply this patch (i've never done a patch install before).

Thank you in advance for any help received
