Running 1.1 userland and 1.1A GENERIC #46 kernel from gwr, I've
noticed that I'm tending to get a fair number of occasions where
my machine will boot, but programs don't run in multi-user mode.
It gets through the /etc/rc all right, but then just lets me know
that getty is repeating too fast on kb, ttya and ttyb, and doesn't
allow telnet logins. Booting back up in single-user mode reveals
that these programs have been dumping core. A typical kernel debugger
back-trace (from the one that happened just now) is:

    [break-into-debugger-related stuff]

This doesn't happen every time, but it does happen on two separate
3/60s, on with 24MB of RAM and one with 4 (poor little thing).

I'm hoping my complete upgrade to -current will fix this, but I
just thought I should let the list know.
