sig-abt when I moderate, join all, or join long_ or bulletin_. And it's
this system that truncated long_messages and bulletin_old, I didn't do it,

TITLE: Horrible Bugs! ALL broken, ORDER destructive

Something seems seriously wrong. When I tried "join telecomm/all", NLZ
drops my connection. I later managed to get it to join a particular topic
with "join telecomm/broadband". Then I tried to move telecomm into it's
proper alphabetical order place in my list of conferences, with "order
telecomm typography". A subsequent "show" command went into an infinite
loop, listing my conferences over and over again, with two telecomm's in
each cycle.

Additionally, SSH connections stay dead until a few minutes have passed
(you can't reconnect to NLZero.com). Well, there is a trick, after using
multitasking to tie up the dead SSH daemons with (failed) new connections,
I can get a new one which works. But anyone else not knowing the trick
will be unable to connect for a few minutes.

OK, on further experimentation, it seems to be due to bad topics in telecomm,
in particular "bulletin_" and "long_" seem to be the culprits.
