	I was editing in vi, and undid a long string of undo's.  vi tossed 
	it's cookies and sent me the std. recovery mail.  doing a "vi -r"
	and giving the name of the recovery file causes a further core dump.

	I've put up the recovery files on my web site for whomever is 
	interested in fixing this problem.

	Problem appears random, but mostly after a large number of undo's
