A patch for version 3.95 of Pine was made available on 14 Jan. 1997. It has
been incorporated into Pine 3.96. The patch addressed the following problems:
Sun Solaris 2.5 crash -- A bug in the Solaris kernel causes a
system hang when a zero byte read is attempted on a network socket.
AIX 4.2 composer "hang" -- A bug in the Pico makefile introduced
an incompatibility between Pine and the Pico library causing
Pine to appear to "hang" when entering the Pine Composer.
Sent message dot quoting -- A bug in Pine's posting code can
cause periods in message bodies to get doubled. This is most
evident when including uuencoded files in a message body.
Note, this problem did not impact message attachments.
Improved HUP handling vs. poll system call -- Fixes a problem that
cause what appeared to be a crash when a HUP was received
while waiting for command input. Affected ports include:
generic SVR4, Solaris, and DYNIX/ptx.
C-client locking vs. symbolic links security patched.
Address book problems when no nickname supplied fixed.
Slightly more forgiving Date sort.
Improved handling of unexpected changes to address book data.
