        * ProcBar constructor: cast to correct callback signature, which

Pan 0.12.91

Pan 0.12.91, `If you were in the moccasins of Peter Pigeonhole',
has been released.  It can be found at http://pan.rebelbase.com/.
What is Pan?

        Pan is a newsreader, loosely based on Agent and Gravity, which
        attempts to be pleasant to use for new and advanced users alike.
        It has all the typical features found in newsreaders and also
        supports yEnc, offline newsreading, article filtering, multiple
        connections, and a number of extra features for power users and
        alt.binaries fans.

        It's also the only Unix newsreader to get a perfect score on the
        Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval evaluations.  See
        http://pan.rebelbase.com/features/ for the rest of the
        sales pitch.
