Re: EMACS illegal memory write

I increased the sizes of the internal buffers in MAICHK.MID and added
a 1F? to MAICHK.EMACS, and compiled, compressed, and otherwise gronked
everythink needing gronking.  I am fairly sure that your problem was
the midas code overwriting itself when it happened to get a username
39 characters long and when the time of day was a four-digit number.
So you get the first notification for the long username, but the next
pass you try to execute garbage code.  The rest of the changes are
just paranoia in case the problem was really that the code was falling
into the gap or something.
