today it happened when i was doig make clean in the whole pkgsrc tree on my 
1.6ZH. i think that's another proof, that the problem probably lies somewhere in 
the harddisk i/o operations (in the past, i had problems mostly when unpacking 
gzipped files - again hdd i/o).
running the debugger from the serial console wasn't possible. tip displayed only 
~ character.

what to do now? wait for another -current? or should i upgrade to 1.6ZJ and try 
to catch it again and hope that this time i'll get to ddb?
