	While executing the command `mdir' from the mtools package,
	my sparc crashed like this:
	  panic: fdcintr: spurious interrupt can't be cleared
	  #0  0xf003229c in mi_switch ()
	  #1  0xf0031bf0 in bpendtsleep ()
	  #2  0xf00f0878 in uvm_scheduler ()
	  #3  0xf002376c in main ()

	say `mdir' as root, with a floppy inserted in the drive.
