Also note that at least as far as my PB3400 went, when I switched from
glibc1.99 to glibc2, bat.c stopped talking to Batmon.  The reason seemed to
be buffered IO.  I fixed bat.c by adding an fflush:

      printf(" %d %d %d %d %d\n", (reply[2] << 8) + reply[3], reply[4],
	     reply[5], reply[6], (reply[7] << 8) + reply[8]);

    fflush( stdio );  /* flush to Batmon */
    while ((c = getchar()) != '\n' && c != EOF)
