Pen 0.6.2 released

This release fixes a minor bug. When pen tries to connect to a server, it
uses a timeout to ensure that it doesn't hang indefinitely if there is no

Normally the server responds within the specified time and the timeout
should be cancelled, but that wasn't done. As a result, pen got an ALRM
signal after a while. If that happened during a system call the results
would be incorrect. Pen 0.6.2 fixes this infrequently occurring but still
annoying problem.
