System: NetBSD nemesis 1.0_BETA NetBSD 1.0_BETA (NEMESIS) #7: Fri Sep 2 17:04:43 PDT 1994 downsj@nemesis:/usr/src/sys/arch/hp300/compile/NEMESIS hp300

	gdb(1) can no longer 'run' programs using the 'run' command
	from within the debugger.

	gdb prints the following diagnostic, and then stops execution:

reading register pc (#17): Invalid argument.

	Attempting the resume execution produces the same result.
	Upon exiting gdb, it will clain the program is still running.

	This is on the hp300. I have no up-to-date i386en to test this

	This did not occur on my previous binary/kernel set, from
	mid August.

	gdb any binary, and try the 'run' command.
