no - my fixes were addressing a complaint that some sites did not accept
the mime-encoded data, and comparing against netscape decided that was
the issue.  Possibly as you suggest, the MIME headers are missing, but
at least plain text can be uploaded (limited testing).  I was thinking of
revisiting it to make a file-selection dialog, but have been very swamped
with my day-job since February (so my to-do list only grows ;-).

I did check (just now) a file against, so at least
lynx does succeed in uploading to that site.

I'm not sure (a few people have worked on TRST, but I've only done some
repair work after that).
