Deleted the timezone on Kim's SASL patch entry.  Ruud has taken to adding the
timezone even though all previous entries are missing it, and I don't really
agree with that.  True, on occasion someone in a different timezone will
commit something later in the day than someone else, and even though the second
change happens later, the time may be earlier, but that doesn't happen too often
and isn't really a big deal, IMHO.

Putting textual timezones like "EDT" isn't really the right solution, IMHO,
since some of those tags are ambiguous.  Either an offset-style timezone should
be used or all times should be given as UTC.

Applied Alec Wolman <>'s dropsbr.c patch:

  In the map_write routine, a call is made to map_open and this call is supposed
  to set the "clear" variable to 0 or 1, depending on whether the map file is
  empty or not.  In mh6.8.3, this worked because map_open would set "clear" by
  calling the mbx_Xopen routine.  In nmh, the code for mbx_Xopen was merged into
  mbx_open, but the interface for mbx_open doesn't support the clear variable,
  so that functionality was lost.  The map_open interface still contains "int
  *clear" in the prototype, but never sets it.

  My patch eliminates "clear" from the map_open interface (I checked to make
  sure that map_write is the only client of map_open).  Furthermore, my patch
  also sets the "clear" variable properly at the beginning of map_write by
  calling fstat().  This eliminates the bug in that the value of "clear" being
  used later in the routine was just stack garbage.

  Having a bad value of clear causes this next bug to be triggered: The fp file
  pointer was being opened with fdopen, but in two of the three switch cases it
  wasn't being closed.  In certain cases, this was causing packf to run out of
