I used to get ``fatal signal 6'' and ``fatal signal 11'' OFTEN before upgrading
to 3.51m.  Arrgh, the frustrations of compiling large programs ... sometimes
required 15 to 20 "nohup make &" before it'd complete successfully (even with
kernel version 3.51a).

One of the release notes (either net-posted or accompanying FIXDISK 2)
mentioned a long-standing kernel bug in this regards was fixed by 3.51m.

The only gripe I have concerns 19,200 baud operation ("Oh gawd, Thad, let it
rest!" :-)
