Just a couple of items noticed on recent (since 7/4/95, maybe even 
earlier) builds:

1) I seem to get a lot of seemingly random program aborts.  When I use 
gdb to look at the .core file, it always says that the program exitted 
with a "bus error".  It happens quite a bit with ls especially, and it 
even happened to routed during my last boot.  But immediately reexecuting 
the same command almost always works.  This makes it "feel" like maybe 
the program tried to do some I/O, and then forgot to wait for the I/O to 

2) The recent changes to termcap seem to have broken a few things.  Like 
screen (using screen, because dt isn't working yet).  And tcsh seems to 
have some big problems repainting its prompt when using the up- and 
down-arrows.  I'm gonna rebuild tcsh to see if that fixes the problems;  
can't rebuild screen 'cuz I don't have sources :(
