Yep, known bug. Others on this list have confirmed it too.
I had submitted a pkgsrc pr, but that was suspended since it's a kernel
bug. I've been told a kernel pr has been submitted but haven't
heard anything regarding a fix. It's been outstanding for quite a
On a side note this, and another PR I've submitted regarding what
I would consider a showstopper bug in the linker/loader, cause me to
seriously question the confidence I have in NetBSD. Here's what I
consider to be two really big bugs in what should be an extremely
well-used section of code, and it's been weeks/months without
a fix. Probably it's because I'm running on SPARC, not i386.
This is not an attempt to fix blame, simply an observation on the
status quo. I have tried in my own feeble way to find the bugs
in question, but it's beyond my ability. Support for non-i386
platforms seems to have taken a serious turn for the worse.
