The folks at the computer center here discovered that the binary patch
suggested by Keith Bostic isn't the best.  I believe that the Null
will match a <nl> from the user on the smtp connection.  We patched in
a <cr> instead.  Doesn't seem to be a way to pass this in (no, ^v^m
doesn't cause a match).
