2.8.4dev.16 is older than 2.8.4rel.1

Now that my memory is jogged, I recall an issue with the use of curses pads
which I fixed last fall (in the 2.8.5dev.x).  That's one of the fixes that I
separated out for post-2.8.4 fixes under the release webpage.  This is from


+2001-10-06 (2.8.5dev.3)
+* modify LYtouchline() to avoid using wredrawln() for ncurses, since the
+  LYwin variable may be a pad much wider than the screen, which is not handled
+  properly (report by Karl Eichwalder <address@hidden>) -TD

(any package built for 2.8.4 should include the two patches)
