   Sent them a bug report, but they do not respond to anyone outside the
university. Also,

"Obtaining Alpine software

Source Download

Software and source code is no longer available from the University of
Washington. It is recommended to evaluate one of the alternative versions of
this software supported by the community. A wikipedia page that tracks
continued community development, and provides links to patched versions of
the software is available here."

   Looking at the Wikipedia page I see that the current developer is Eduardo Chappa
and he's the one with whom I've been communicating. I'll ask him if version
2.21.9 has this change. If so, I'll download the source and use the
Slackware script to build it and upgrade.
