Correction to PROBLEMS file - process-connection-type

I understand that the process-connection-type problem has been fixed in cvs, so that the default value is true when emacs is built on OSX 10.3 or higher - see http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/emacs-devel/2005-01/msg00811.html

Please could someone correct /PROBLEMS which still states:

*** Mac OS X (Carbon): Process output truncated when using ptys.

There appears to be a problem with the implementation of pty's on the
Mac OS X that causes process output to be truncated.  To avoid this,
leave process-connection-type set to its default value of nil.

This is now only accurate on OS 10.2 and below. It may also be worth noting there that the consequence of this is that shell mode and Tramp mode do not work properly on OS 10.2 - see eg http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2004-06/msg00012.html and this thread: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnu-emacs/2003-08/msg00579.html
