Description osman 1999-11-28 17:19:55 UTC
It seems that the version "pine-4.20-2.i386.rpm" doesn't unset the unseen flag on messages properly.
When I have a new messae in a folder or system-inbox and I read it, it should reset that flag to seen.
But when I quit pine and re-enter pine again that message is sowing up as unseen.
The same symptom is also occuring when I read unseen msg's and return
to pine after quiting.
The last version didn't had that problem...
I don't recall If I upgraded from 4.10-x or 4.20-1 ...

Have you checked that you don't have a stale lock file floating around
somewhere? I had this very problem a while back, and it proved to be because
netlag had killed my telnet, causing pine to abort abnormally, and when I next
connected and ran pine, the stale lock flag resulting from the crash held the
PID of another user's pine process, causing pine to go into READ-ONLY mode.

I don't know whether the fact that the PID had been reused was relevant, but
certainly the behaviour was there...

Comment 2 osman 1999-11-29 13:26:59 UTC
No I don't think it has to do with a lock file because then you will be warned
that pine is in READ-ONLY mode. Because I don't get that kind of message or
indication I don't think that's the case.
Furthermore it happens in ALL folders so...

This seems to be fixed in the ones included in Red Hat Linux 6.2
