[Alpine-info] global smtp-server setting not being recognized

This is a follow up to the message I sent the other day. With the help of
the exim folks, I was able to determine that when sending mail from alpine,
it was not correctly seeing the smtp-server. In my global config, I have:
When I login to alpine and look at the config, I see:
SMTP Server (for sending) = <No Value Set: using "">
When I change the SMTP Server setting locally to
localhost/submit/tls/novalidate-cert, alpine sends correctly (instead of
trying to connect to the mail server twice like it was doing previously).
Is there some reason why this particular global configuration setting is not
being correctly set on the end-user's config? Is this a bug or I am doing
something wrong? I have no reason to believe there is a syntax error.. I
have tried deleting the user's .pinerc and letting alpine recreate it to no
avail. The user's .pine-debug1 file shows the smtp-server set exactly as it
should be, but for some reason, alpine doesn't see it.
I'd hate to have to manually edit lots of .pinerc files if I can avoid it...
