	The vm system is still shaky, sometimes the system hangs, sometimes
	processes hang.
	Just try the command
		tar zxvf file.tar.gz
	Nothing happens.  If you interrupt it and do a ps you see:
  371   392     1   0 -18  0   296  104 thrd_s D    p4    0:00.01 tar zxvf file.tar.gz
	I have no idea.  If I had CVS access I would revert to the state
	before the first object collapse changes were made and then wait
	until things start working again.
