The root of this problem is the response code leafnode 1.9.37 on FreeBSD
(and other systems that don't have a correct snprintf implementation)
issues is ### rather than 220 to 223 for the ARTICLE command. PINE
doesn't understand that code (and it doesn't need to) and refuses to
display the data it has received. The fresh leafnode 1.9.38 fixes the
bug on FreeBSD 4-STABLE for me; until the port is fixed, you can get a
binary package for Pentium-class machines running FreeBSD 4 from

The package has been built on 4-STABLE (post 4.8-RELEASE), the MD5
digest is 392ee23c65e463a5a423c8d64783e57b.
