You'll probably need to go back further than that.  The package on the site is
still bugged, unless someone else has updated it since I uploaded it.  The
bugs I'm aware of include:

* The use of file->_fileno where fileno(file) should be used (diskio.c)
* Adding space for a NULL termination of strings (diskio.c)
* Character memory allocation in do_show, do_stat (stat file), and do_last
* Fixes to played time and last login (db.c)
* Typo correction in alias loading (db.c)

Make sure you've got all those.  If you're missing any let me know and I'll
dig up the changes.  I think there may be a couple other fixes I've made that
aren't in my rcs log of my memory.  There may also be a couple changes
necessary to make it work correctly with circle patch levels of 14 or higher.
