Glad to hear it!
there are just two minor issues left for me in 2.3.21:1. Reflowing lines (when replying for instance) does not work very well , with some lines ending up very short. Messages with multiple levels of reply markers (> > >) also tend to get screwed up. See http:// nullinfinity.org/tmp/reflow.png for an example.I can second this.
Reflowing works only if you uncheck "Wrap Outgoing Text" on the "Outgoing" page of the prefs dialog (with that option unchecked, Balsa uses the "Format=flowed" protocol to identify paragraphs that can be reflowed). And then...we had a small bug, the effect of which was that, even if you were composing a flowed message, Balsa was quoting flowed messages as if they were fixed :(
Svn now has a fix for that. So now, if you have a dialog with someone who also uses "Format=flowed", that embarrassing quoting shouldn't happen.
2. Balsa often gets unhappy when the network disappears, such as when suspending a laptop. It goes unresponsive and sometimes manages to recover after a few minutes, but usually it stays unresponsive and I have to kill the program.I'm running on a laptop (F8) and I'v never seen this behavior.
I do sometimes see this with Balsa after a suspend/resume cycle (Thinkpad T43, F9), and also sometimes with Epiphany. Balsa usually regains consciousness after many seconds--perhaps minutes, I've never actually timed it--but I usually finish up killing Epiphany. Seems it's not specific to Balsa...
