Alright, this makes two people with upgrade problems, which is incredibly
bad.  I'm working with one of them already, so when I find a solution,
I'll be sure to fix libc and upload a fresh one (or bash, since this may
be a libreadline problem).

The only thing I can think of is that I used a newer egcs copy this time
around.  Any thoughts on this?
