Hmm, any way to tell how much stack a program currently has?
And for that matter, what are the options to toglclr?
And how do I get sharable programs to share? (the new bash, for
instance, doesnt seem to (8 copies and I'm out of memory 8( )

I am fairly certain it's a memory problem - I'm saving for extra memory, 
and I'm praying that I can hack my 4M TTram board to do 16 - if the 
schematics can be trusted, the controllers are the same, there's just a
little track-butchery to do.

That's what the fragment in serial.c defines it as, from memory.

I'm actually having problems uncompressing the received newsbatches - 
gzip (1.2.4) complains that they're corrupt, however the (large) mails
I've received were fine.  Did you build using stdio or low-level? 
Would "rb"/"wb" be needed for any of the file operations, or does the
library default to binary mode?
