Funny, your alpine is breaking threading.

Yes. Sorry about that. I had problems finding documentation for
setting up roles in Alpine. Alpine is much better than the old broken
Pine but there is still a lack of some information about some aspects
of Alpine configuration.

Now it is correct.

I simply imported the pine configuration. I copied ".pinerc" to ".alpinerc", and I start it using "alpine -p .alpinerc", because for some time I was using both (I participated in the beta testing of alpine). I didn't have the problem you describe, but yes, information is not complete.

Also, I'm thinking that, either you got alpine from somewhere else, as it
doesn't come with the stable opensuse, or you are using factory, which does
have alpine 1.10 (alpine-1.10-9)

Alpine compiled from source. It's a long term habit I developed
through using the old broken version of Pine with SuSE software. I
prefer to compile from source anyway. The maildir patch in the 1.10
version seems to work well.

Yes, my version is selfcompiled too. I use the allpatches version from E. Chappa, considering that the suse version of Pine is also the one with the (probably) same patches. There is one that allows sorting by thread, with those with recent additions at the bottom (keyboard K-A).

Are you using factory, ie, opensuse 11.0? That might explain your problems.

No, OpenSuSE 10.3 AMD64 with KDE 3.5. I'd like to use KDE4 but as the
Debian developers and users point out it's not quite as finished as
some people like to claim.

No, it is not really finished. It is much better in the factory version, though.

and check the output (the explanation is in "man rpm"). If an rpm has
or bad files, reinstall that rpm.

Doesn't seem to be anything missing there.

Dunno then.

Hmmm... ah well.... , maybe I'll have to re-install OpenSuSE 10.3. If
this was the 32-bit version I would take a chance on 11.0 RC1 but I've
had so many problems trying to get this version of the Gigabyte board
to accept any Linux software that I find it's best to stay with 64-bit
and struggle along with that. At least the OpenSuSE 64-bit software
works (mostly).

Pity, I never like the idea of having to reinstall, but if you don't know what happened... My crystal ball is at a loss.

Do you have enabled "questionable" repositories? I mean, anything outside the official oss, non-oss, and updates. You might be using something experimental, perhaps :-?
