My point exactly.
Should I go back to my original

As soon as I have time, I will close this bug report. You should feel
free to make whatever bug reports you feel are necessary. Please make
them single issue, concise and clear, with enought tracking information
to make understanding the bug possible.
I am not up for conceptual design review being done as bug reports. Both
the 'overencoding attachment', and the 'Pine wants to post' bugs are of
this type. The INN configuration compatibility problems should certainly
be addressed.(I'm still a little confused about why this is a bug, since
you tell me that pine has no business posting to news groups) The error
message flash problem is definately a nasty.
