Actually, it looks like someone is fixing it, but hasn't made a
release recently.

http://git.gnome.org/browse/pan2/log/

In fact, fedora seems to be building 0.133 with only a single patch.

http://cvs.fedoraproject.org/viewvc/rpms/pan/devel/pan-0.133-gcc44.patch?revision=1.1&view=markup

That seems to correspond to this upstream commit:
