 Actually, that was a false conclusion on my part.  On the failing machine,
 I did my test in my pkgsrc build area which is on a different filesystem
 from /tmp.  On the "working" machine, I did the test IN /tmp, so it
 succeeded.  Had I done the test elsewhere, that machine too would likely
 have crashed.

 I've applied the patch and am rebuilding now (on a completely different
 machine running 6.0beta since the others are at risk).
