SubjectRe: PROBLEM: ia64 kernel hangs
I cannot reproduce this on 2.4.19 (the program runs to completion
without starting a subprocess, because the memory limit is so low).
2.4.16 is ancient and I don't have it on any machine at the moment.

Galen> [X.] 2.4.18 and 2.4.9 on ia32 do not produce the hang from
Galen> the c program above. Changing the values handed to
Galen> setrlimit() will workaround the hang on ia64 (a small limit
