Patch for Pine 3.95

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:
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
