 hmm so then how long j.random.user would have to wait for it?  MiNT 1.12? ;)

 yup.  btw there were are a few more useful 1.09 patches i haven't seen
back, like select-for-multiple-processes, quotes in mint.cnf setenv...

 hey, another idea: :)  could tosfs default /c etc. to have the
sticky-bit on for compatibility and only inherit that to directories?
(so shared-text binaries are not all sticky too.)
