more __gmon_start__ afflictions

Joining the likes of mkfontdir are now the latest cron and login
packages.  I strongly suggest you don't install the latest login
(20000902-3) if you still want to use your machine:

Mar  6 11:59:39 bug kernel: login: unhandled page fault at pc=0x00000000, lr=0x400702e8 (bad address=0x00000000, code 0)

I've reverted to potato version on this machine, although my other
machine has -2 and is fine.


bug:/home/peter# ltrace /usr/sbin/cron
__gmon_start__(1, 0xbffffd4c, 0xbffffd54, 39784, 0x4001f3e8 <unfinished ...>
--- SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault) ---
+++ killed by SIGSEGV +++

For cron 3.0pl1-65, and gives a similar syslog message.

I've filed a grave bug against login, since it pretty much makes the
system unusable as login crashes.  I'll file something against cron too
