No, I posted that an no one came up with a solution. There were a few
people contemplating the problem though.
I put up with it for awhile, and it wasn't all that bad -- fairly rare and
I could recover composed messages from the ~/#pico*# file. So I kept on
using Alpine on Solaris despite the "alarm clock" crashes.
(Now I am happily using Ubuntu instead and I dumped the old Solaris box --
a once-upon-a-time $10K machine now essentially worthless. I know that
doesn't help you much!)
