I beleive that if the remote system loads BBS in responce to CR,
instead of resending intro a few more times - this is a misbehavior
on the remote side. As a workaround, change `SM_START(skipjunk)' to
`SM_START(waitchar)' in ifcico/session.c line 150. Although, this
won't be `correct' behavior.

I am interested in reports of different file transfer protocols
working/failing on 64bit architecture.
