Fix a bug that sends Alpine in an infinite loop
Patch is available for version: alpine 2.00 alpine 2.01
 
There is a rare bug that sends Alpine in an infinite loop, which can be triggered when alpine displays certain information. If Alpine checks for new mail in incoming folders and finds changes, then Alpine sets a variable that makes Alpine redraw the screen. If this variable is not "turned off" then Alpine might enter in an infinite loop.
 
This patch modifies Alpine by turning this flag off as soon as it is used once.
