tnx for mail. My experience in installing and running pskmail_server

Installation-procedure: works well
- works without crashes, when started via terminal (NOT xterm!!!)
- crashes on tx (transmitting qsl-message, beacon-signal, ...), when it
had been started via xterm (both modes: 'normal' and 'waterfall-only').
So it crashes also, when it had been started via 'pskmail_server'.

So I start fldigi as well as rflinkserver via terminal and the server is
running without any problems!
