 Is a TADPOLE3GX kernel (NetBSD-3.0) available for download
 somewhere (I'd like to avoid getting the source tree and
 compiling one myself).

 At least, the situation has improved: the machine no longer
 hangs (when moving the cursor around in vi as described in
 the original PR).
 However, when moving further up when the cursor is already
 in the top row of the display, vi does not scroll the display
 correctly. Only at the 7th "move-up" of the cursor, the
 display is scrolled. But it seems that vi thinks that the
 cursor is at a completely other line... Could now be a
