Thu Mar 22 23:15:11 CET 2012 vax
Architecture: vax
Machine: vax

Probably fallout from the gcc 4.5.1 and/or -O2 changes:

login in on the console of a vax station 4000 most of the time does not make
it to a command prompt, or hangs on first command that produces serious
amounts of output.

Kernel messages still make it out, only the process on the console hangs.
Sending a siginfo via ctrl-t says for example:

load: 0.03  cmd: stty 334 [iowait] 0.00u 0.00s 0% 0k

and the ps output says:

323 tty03 I    0:00.00 -tcsh 
331 tty03 Is   0:01.00 login 
334 tty03 Z+   0:00.00 (stty)

(why tty03?)
