Fix a bug that makes Alpine not show a login prompt
Patch is available for version: alpine 2.00 alpine 2.01
 
When Alpine is called with initial keystrokes, Alpine may supress the login prompt. This may happen if you have configured Alpine to check for new mail in your incoming folders. In this case, Alpine may show that is executing the initial keystroke, but in practice is waiting for you to input your login information to a server, without your knowledge.
 
Once applied, this patch forces Alpine to show the login prompt during an initial keystroke sequence.
