Willem Konynenberg <w.f.konynenberg@chello.nl> tracked down the problem,
and it has been fixed in Hercules CVS for a while now.


Hercules is moving toward a release, so I will probably be putting
together preliminary packages from CVS relatively soon.  I'll announce
them to the hercules mailing list, and I'll try to remember to send it
here as well, since this bug particularly affects Debian.

Meanwhile, as a workaround, you can build Hercules from CVS.  The
CVSROOT is :pserver:anonymous@cvs.conmicro.cx:/usr/cvs/hercules (blank
password), and the module name is 'hercules'.
