    Chip had asked me to redo the pclose patches against 97j.  I'm sending
    them here to encourage others to try them out since _98 looms so near.
    Also included are the patches I'd sent on Friday for the bugs Gisle
    reported with Time::{localtime,gmtime}, with these this message contains
    all my outstanding patches.
