I thought I had fixed the problem. Replaced the SCSI controller and network
card in the NFS server that holds the source. Did two complete builds without
any coredumps. Now, I updated -current and again I am getting coredumps on
the SS5. It will not coredump with an sh built with "-g". I have reduced 
memory to one 32meg simm. I have tried different memory chips, all of them
known good.

The server is on a Netgear 10/100 switch and the SS5 is on an SVEC 10mb
hub. Netstat doesn't show any errors. 

This is the most perplexing part:

It will not coredump with an sh built with "-g". It repeatedly dumps core
with stock sh.

I'm about ready to declare this machine junk.
