perhaps completely unrelated, but I had a few programs recently that crash
apparently in malloc() or similar. The programs are precompiled binaries from
the RH 5.1 packages - pine (without X) and acm(acms to be exact). Anyone tried
these with a recent kernel release? It might be more related to brk() - I had
similar crashes when I tried to run xemacs-19.13 which resulted from the fact
that brk returned addresses above 2GB.
I hadn't time to recompile them yet..
