I think I've isolated the oddness.  If I change the refresh interval (I
forget the variable name now) in my .pinerc, it doesn't do anything.  I
tried changing it in /etc/pine.conf, and suddenly it's working.  Beats me,
since it's reading other configuration settings just fine from .pinerc.
(There's nothing at all set in /etc/pine.conf.fixed.)

Likewise, in the process of investigating the problem, I did discover the
check-newmail-when-quitting.setting, activated it in .pinerc, and no dice.
I'll try putting it in /etc/pine.conf just to see.  (I'm pretty much the
only user on my system, so I can tinker at will.)

Thanks for the suggestions, everyone.
