Changes from Pine 3.90 to 3.91

Pine 3.91 is primarily a bug-fix release, to correct many (but not all) of the problems reported with version 3.90.

IMPORTANT NOTE: if you are plagued by messages saying ^S or ^Q not defined, or printers losing parts of messages sent from Pine, then set the new feature: "preserve-start-stop-characters". This is needed whenever your printer, modem, or async communications program is configured to use software flow control. Note that setting this feature will result in Pine appearing to "hang" if you accidentally type a ^S. The remedy for this situation is to type a ^Q.

-> Used to avoid incorrect Full Name address info in certain situations.
