I have installed PDCurses 2.5 and THE-3.1 on Linux
2.4.7-10 (RH 7.2). When I try the command line switch
"-1", I get the following error:
> the-3.1-X11 -1 test
*** Messages from profile file ***
Warning: Unable to run in single instance mode:

The problem is that my home directory is in AFS, and
AFS does not support fifo's.
I have solved the problem by slightly modifying the.c.
A new variable is defined (fifo_dir) as
"/tmp/.LOGNAME", LOGNAME being the contents of the
corresponding environment variable (or an empty string
!). The pipe name is "/tmp/.LOGNAME.thefifo", which is
in a local filesystem (unless you have /tmp in AFS !!!).
The differences file is attached.
