Can any alpha guru please have a look at this:

theta# ./top
Floating exception (core dumped)
theta# gdb top top.core
Core was generated by `top'.
Program terminated with signal 8, Floating point exception.
#0  0x120008860 in format_next_process () at machine.c:513
513         sprintf(fmt,

I even tried building libc with -ggdb to debug further, but somehow it
didn't work. :-/

The system this is on is:
theta# uname -a
NetBSD 1.3A NetBSD 1.3A (tkb) #19: Fri Nov 14 22:26:37
PST 1997 alpha
