Matthew Gabeler-Lee and Zack Weinberg seem to have both tripped over a
bug in KPOP support that I introduced while rewriting the

instead need to see a dummy PASS command. This has been reported as
Debian bug #88288.
This patch against the 5.7.0 sources should fix the problem. Please
let me know...
This applies to the 5.6.8 source with no fuzz and does indeed fix the
problem. I see Debian's gone through a bunch of versions in the
meanwhile - as soon as my mirror stabilizes again, I'll report whether
the new package works too.
