Hey folks,

Just posting this in case someone runs into the same problem that I
did.  Slrn is unable to post to a Cyrus nntp server -- slrn
likes to add a trailing space to commands, so it sends "POST " instead
of "POST", and Cyrus nntpd rejects the command.

I've sent the (attached) patch to the slrn authors, but I'm including
it here in case somebody else would like to get slrn working with
