Hrmm.  Is that a problem only when running as root, or does it even
exist as a user?

Yeah.  It's a particularily nasty one, in that the ada front end
requires an existing ada compiler to run.  So until now, there's no
way we could've caught it.

Sure - But they need to reboot it because it crashed, right? =)

Yes.  If you have time for the task, great, if not I was hoping to
solicit volunteers after writing a spec for it.  There seem to be a
few bored people hanging out on #hurd who might be willing to take
this on.

If you don't have time, I was going to look at Tinderbox, but I've
heard it particularily nasty to setup.

That would be cool.  But I'll let him volunteer before I give him
work. ;)

 One of the great things about books is sometimes
