Package: pilot-link
Version:  0.11.7-2
Severity: important

char is per default unsigned on arm, powerpc and s390. There is a warning

pilot-datebook-joblist.c:256: warning: comparison is always true due to 
limited range of data type

during build of your package that might cause a runtime error. Please check


for details.

In your case the variable c should be defined as int. Defining it as 
char is even wrong on i386, since the char 0xff is then interpreted as EOF. 
On the platforms mentioned above the EOF condition is never true, leading to 
an infinite loop.
