You have a SPARCstation-2, no? At least on OpenBSD, which suffers from
the same affliction, it works fine on SS2 and IPX, only SS1 and SS1+
loose (haven't tried IPC). I guess there is some small difference in
the MMU or something. (Even SS1 and SS1+ work fine as long as you have
max 24 megs memory).
