Would you please try this kernel binary as well --
If that works, it would mean that my Egret patches are to blame, since 
there is no other difference between the two builds.

That link is in the message I sent yesterday. But I think you would get 
the same result from your compiler, so I can't recommend it. I suspect a 
bug in my code.

It's not worth pursuing that issue. There are just too many serious known 
bugs in the Linux 2.2 code to support 68k macs.
