Since nobody seems to care about debugger in 1.0 I have
planned to make a small 1.0 installation (I won't leave
0.9a, yet!!!) to see what the heck is it with the ptrace(2).
Any information regarding the problem is welcome.

Now, I have a problem. Since I don't have a working 1.0
environment, can I run binaries compiled under 0.9 in 1.0?
I see there a "COMPAT_09" flag in the configuration file.
Does this it? If not, what else should I do? Do statically
linked 0.9 programs work, or shoud I link dynamic?

Then another thing.. is there any tool to analyze kernel
dumps in /var/crash? I got my first 0.9a panic some time ago:
