	Is this patch applied by default?  I wasn't paying attention.  I'm
kind of curious as to why I couldn't read the core...gdb didn't recognize
it as being a core file at all, and file just said it was ``data.''

	NetBSD 1.3I on i386.  I'm using the debug ROMs.  I'd gladly use
the one on my Palm III, but I don't know how to get it off if it.  :)
