I did notice that NetBSD/sun3 broke a bit after 1.3.3 too. Specifically, 1.4
and onwards fails to run XSunMono for me.
Was this time period when UVM was being added?
<< Major changes between 1.3 and 1.4

Cranor, which is substantially cleaner and better performing than the old Mach
derived VM subsystem. >>
Yup. "substantially cleaner and borkener"
