Multibyte fix for pico
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-01-29 01:31:31 EST
Patch added to pine 4.44-4 in rawhide.
Comment 3 terbak 2002-03-16 19:04:18 EST
This patch is way broken with pine: the word-wrapping is broken, backspace on 
first column does not bring the text up one line, and pine crashes when writing 
a bit.
Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2002-03-17 11:37:37 EST
Indeed.  Patch removed from pine-4.44-6 release for stabilization.
At this point I will not permit this patch to be included as it can
interfere with the standard operation of PINE.  Such enhancements
should be made by submitting patches to the PINE team themselves.

Thanks terbak for tracking the wordwrap problem down.
Comment 5 Nakai 2002-03-18 02:51:31 EST
I'll continue for the future product release.

Closing bug WONTFIX

pine/pico aren't true open source software, and dedicating resources
to issues like this isn't a priority because of that, in particular
when there are tonnes of other editors available that can be used
