IMO this http-based forum replacing the appropriate NNTP is a similar disaster to gMail via
http. Particularly since TC claims to be <minimalist>.
I can't SEE the message that I'm trying to answer to.
That's where wily shines: you can see multiple files on the ONE screen.
My confusion/mistake about pam v pan lead me to test/confirm that `chroot lynx` could do NNTP.
And my suspicion that pan is a monster unsuited for TC seems also confirmed by the error trace
posted below:- [but pan added a slik icon to the <apps bar>]
(pan:9400): Gtk-WARNING **: Could not find the icon 'edit-find'. The 'hicolor' theme
was not found either, perhaps you need to install it.
You can get a copy from: http://icon-theme.freedesktop.org/releases
(pan:9400): Gtk-WARNING **: Error loading theme icon 'edit-find' for stock: Icon 'edit-find' not present in theme Adwaita

(pan:9400): Gtk-WARNING **: gtk_widget_size_allocate(): attempt to underallocate GtkTreeView's child GtkButton 0x29e0500. Allocation is 24x25, but minimum required size is 29x25.
(pan:9400): Gdk-ERROR **: The program 'pan' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadValue (inteOPger parameter out of range for operation)'.
(Details: serial 870 error_code 2 request_code 139 (RENDER) minor_code 34)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the GDK_SYNCHRONIZE environment
variable to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
