amiga 4000/040 w/ 16mb RAM

Running install on a file in the current directory, to the current
directory causes a kernel panic on my machine.  The panic stated "locking
against self" (or something similar).  Each time, I have been running as
root (twice in multiuser--where I can't see the console because of X11, and
once in single-user mode).

install foo .
has crashed my amiga the three times I have tried it.
