:I'm running the 19990103 sparc snapshot, and ktraces are incomplete!
:I'm sending to current-users because I wonder if it's a MD or MI problem.
:Example:  I'm trying to figure out why cda can't do visual on my screen
:("Error opening terminal: xterm.").
:This is the extent of "ktrace -i -d /usr/X11/bin/cda visual":
:  2204 ktrace   RET   ktrace 0
:  2204 ktrace   CALL  execve(0xeffff715,0xeffff688,0xeffff694)
:  2204 ktrace   NAMI  "/usr/X11/bin/cda"
:About the only thing I can think of is a kernel mismatch, since the
:kernel is not from said snapshot; if that fails, I'll be back.

I bet you that cda is setuid or setgid.
