Ugh, I knew this, I think I've read the entire list archive atleast twice
now.  Oh well, yeah it does work.

got it,
(just leaving some more breadcrumbs)

Ok, I've got a new kernel compiling right now.  So while its fresh in my
mind, I've had two unexpected segfaults in the past few weeks, both were
shells (probalby a coincidence one was csh the other sh).  I figure its
probably flakey RAM, but just incase I thought I'd throw it out and see if
anyone else has seen similar behavior.  I couldn't reproduce the segfaults
either.  One happened while I was building qmail, and the other when I was
building gettext.  Anyhow, hopefully new memory will alleviate that.
