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
