I did a 'cvs update' again, and started a new build.  Built new tools,
then kernels, without swap enabled.  Booted a new kernel, and started a
full userland build *with* swap enabled.  While it was working on libc,
I deliberatedly quit a long-running 'top', whose parent shell had been
swapped out.  This now caused the VAX to drop to the chevron prompt,
claiming an 'ISP ERR'.

It's sitting there now.  What should I do to get as much information as
possible out of it before rebooting?
