I am experiencing two weird problems with SUP. If anyone has similar
problems please let me know; I'd like to solve them (the problems are
probably caused by the HP/UX box I ported SUP to).
(1) When SUP'ing to sup.introl.com (/a/anon_ftp), the 'src' collection always
aborts the program partway through, with the error "Error receiving
end of message".
(2) When SUP'ing to sup.netbsd.org (/ftp/pub), SUP recycles to the hold and
reconnect mode (Will retry in X seconds) without reporting why the sup
failed in the first place. It just disconnects, waits, reconnects, etc.
I can provide the hacks I added for HP/UX if anyone is interested. I would
really like to see it posix-ized (it certainly is *not*!) though I don't
have the time to do it right now.
