This exception is only thrown (when handling the TOP command) if there is a=
CRLF problem. Can you (manually) check if all the lines returned by the fr=
eepops server (for the TOP command) are terminated by CRLF (0x0d 0x0a) and =
not just by a line feed (LF, 0x0a)? If this is not the case it's a bug in t=
he freepops server (the RFC standard requires CRLF), otherwise it's probabl=
y a gnubiff bug.
