Anyone else notice that Executor 1.99m does not appear to run with
NetBSD's Linux binary compatibility?? [1.99k does work, however].
Using ktrace and a slightly modified kdump, it appears that the
program in question is looping very tightly around a 'gettimeofday'
system call. Not having a gdb which can deal with Linux binaries, I
can't tell what it is exactly doing, but the loop is tight enough that
most X events can't do their assigned tasks [iconify the window, and
it won't refresh when deiconified, and mouse clicks are not
acknowledged, for example].
Anyone have any clues [anyone have a cross-gdb??] ??
