I had this problem too. Reason is, Chris calls copyinstr() in the new
exec code with a "pretty large" maximum buffer size, which is clearly
larger than the 64k supported by the original locore.s. I just added some
test statements to forcibly limit the maximum to 64k, and exec worked 
fine again.


PS: hope to check in current sources today.
