BitWagon Software LLC
System: NetBSD NetBSD32.local 5.0.2 NetBSD 5.0.2 (GENERIC) #0: Sat Feb 6 
17:53:27 UTC 2010
Architecture: i386
Machine: i386 (amd64 in i386 mode)
        Executing a 3-instruction program causes a crash to BIOS about 70%
        of the time.  The other 30% the shell reports "SIGTRAP - core dumped"
        which is correct.  Sometimes gdb catches the SIGTRAP and reports pc
        == 0x80010033 with sp==0x0, despite no pages mapped at either address.
        Machine is amd64 running in i386 mode:
