Hi Tim,

Really glad to hear you on the list. I can confirm that a reflector name
>30 characters seems to hang CUSM/Mac x7-9, but only *after* it reads in
the nicknames file and truncates entries to 30. (See the following
Nicknames file.)

Once the truncation happens the program happily lives in subsequent
incarnations. Question: will you be fixing this in a soon-to-be-released
version or should I change the master CUSM reflector list that I send out
to reflect this bug?
