It turned out to be a memory problem. The system has EDO memory, which
doesn't have parity. One of the 4 32meg SIMMs was silently corrupting
data. I put in 4 new chips and I'm now running:

NetBSD 1.4X NetBSD 1.4X (ROOTHOG) #0: Sat Apr 15 15:34:52 MDT 2000 i386

This is with the source from 4/13. I didn't want to believe it was a hardware
problem so I obstinately reinstalled 4 times before I replaced the memory. :-)
