When I was using the upgrade feature of systinst to move from 1.3.2 to 1.4
last week, I noticed that if /usr/include/machine was non-empty, it caused
5+ minute delays between pax sets with a clear screen. It also completed the
unpacking before announcing that it couldn't go any further.

If I wasn't such a persistant bastard, I'd have installed Linux by now. I
think that this needs to be fixed. Which tarball has sysinst in it?

I'm using a Digital VT510 80x24 serial console, and sysinst seems to think
that 80x25 is the norm.
