    Ok, I sent a copy of  fsck_ffs core to Martin Husemann, but didn=E2=80=99=
 t send it to the list because the list seems to automatically expand =
 compressed file attachments, and this one will expand to 1.7 MB or so. =
 If anyone wants to have a copy, just let me know.
    Anyway, as an =E2=80=9Dacid test=E2=80=9D I=E2=80=99ve installed lynx =
 from pkgsrc, and it (including the dependencies) ran to completion =
 without a single hiccup in 8 * 24 + 15 =3D 207 hours. I had =E2=80=9Dtop=E2=
 =80=9D running on the LC III=E2=80=99s CRT, and ran the commands =
 remotely via XQuartz ( ssh -x ) on my Mac Mini. I=E2=80=99m a bit =
 familiar with lynx, and it seems to work as advertised, although I =
 haven=E2=80=99t had time to run =E2=80=9Dda shit=E2=80=9D out of it yet.
    Summa summarum:  So far only fsck has shown any problem. Difficult to =
 troubleshoot, since the computer will freeze when fsck crashes.
 Best regards,
