So, i looked in some places, replaced all chmap with charset, added
few random spaces, changed some code and slrn compiled.
It is awfully unstable, crashes when i try to load more than ~50
Non-Ascii letters are unreadable.

So, it means that i made errors somewhere and i would love if someone
point them to me.

Makefile is attached, on end of post are compile warnings. I can
upload compiled binary if it is necessary.
Slang 2.0.7, slrn downloaded today from cvs.

Strange bug, slrn cvs 2007-01-25

I'm using on OSX 10.4.8 PowerPC the cvs snapshot of slrn taken from debian
experimental (2007-01-25).

There's a strange behaviur sometimes, slrn shows a group with 1 message
to read, but when I press return slrn returns in browser mode, showing 0
message to read and the "No unread articles found." error.
It doesn't happen for each group, just once in a while. The error
persist if I try to read old articles (ESC-3-return on a group name),
when selecting to read just one article I experience the same error.

Googling a bit, I found out that there's no real new message in that group,
maybe it's an error in message counting (just blindly guessing).

This is me trying to fetch one (1) of the already read articles of
After trying to get one of those, I have the previously described "No
unread articles found." error.

Is there a way to make slrn more verbose?
