What's interesting is that I reliably get an exception sometime
when compiling the kernel. This is an i586 running 2.1.x, using
'make oldconfig; make dep clean zlilo modules modules_install' to

If anyone's interested I can isolate which part of the compilation
causes the exception, it's just a time-consuming thing to do.
