#21: Wed Nov 22 05:29:03 EST 2000 alpha

	On NetBSD 1.5 with an alpha, vi dumps core when searching for
	some (but not all!) characters with the high bit set.  This
	problem doesn't occur with -current, and I don't have any other
	(running) 1.5 boxes to test against...
	On an alpha:

		echo a > a
		vi a

	where ^X is <ctrl-X>.
	Not known.  There are no code difference between the 1.5 and
	-current vi sources.  Perhaps something in ctype(3)?
