everything works well, but:

sometimes (4 or 5 times per day) after transmitting beacons or qsls fldigi's squelch is deactivated.

Hello server ops...
The fldigi arq interface has changed to include a handshake which should
prevent the server to overwrite a buffer while fldigi is changing modes...
This to test if it is the cause for the ongoing crashes.
Once mode change is ready fldigi sends an <STX> character, the server can not start sending
text to fldigi before the <STX> is received..
This arq.pm library contains the new handshake routine.
I have put in a timer which says: "this arq.pm is for fldigi-3.21.83 and up.... pse upgrade\n" after 5 seconds, Don't use this library when you use an older fldigi, the server then has to wait 5 seconds before sending anything ;-). Drop this file into the /usr/local/share/pskmail_server directory and restart the server. It would be nice if you could run fldigi-3.21.83 under gdb, so we can get a stack trace when it crashes.
(start with 'gdb fldigi', and 'run').
In case of a crash do a 'bt', and send us the stack dump....
