That's because you didn't install a new boot program. The integration
of ddb showed that we had a small bug in boot.c that prevented the
preservation of the symboltable.

Ok. Aug 10 was before I integrated Phil's improved driver. Could you
please try adding local/softcar keywords to your /etc/ttys? I don't have
terminals hanging from any port but the console port. It's not that easy
for me to change this. The console cable is an internal connection
between my i386 X-Terminal and my pc532 (both share one housing).
