v1.4  25Feb2018
---------------
1. Improve ARQ connection request logic to prevent ARIM from timing
   out when the ARDOP TNCs are having difficulty establishing the
   connection.
2. Fix bug sometimes causing 'TNC busy' errors after an ARQ session
   has timed out if connection was initiated immmediately after
   receiving an ARDOP frame (e.g. ping ack frame if pilot pings are
   used).
3. Adjust to new gcc 7 string format truncation diagnostics. Change
   'snprintf' destination buffer sizes where needed and explicitly
   handle certain format truncation cases to satisfy the compiler and
   prevent warnings.
