Thanks for the suggestion.  It's a good idea, but I removed $new only
from the second trap (error signals).

Frankly, I don't know what `trap ... 0' is (no /bin/sh manual here
around).  If any /bin/sh guru knows, please enlighten me.

Well, there sometimes occur Solaris compatibility bugs.  They are
usually unpleasant bugs, since they occur only on certain Solaris
versions.  I am sorry, but I rather spend my spare time fixing bugs
present on free systems (such as GNU/Linux, GNU/HURD or free versions of
BSD), I hope you understand it.  If someone submits reasonable
compatibility patches, I'll incorporate it, of course.

If we are going to start removing packages because of the quality of the
software, wonderful.  I move to remove all traces of the travesty of editors,
vi, from Debian, since obviously as editors they are less than alpha quality
software.                                   -- Manoj Srivastava in debian-devel
