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 (/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 (/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.
