Since installing 2.1.43 (and pre-2.1.44-2) I see
Ugh at c0111135
regularly in the logs. This is in do_page_fault:

$ gdb vmlinux
gdb> disassemble do_page_fault

The system appears to run without any problems despite of this.
An odd thing is that is happens

1) Shortly after the system boots
2) Every time I pick up mail and news with uucp

System is an AMD 5x86-P75 (133 mhz 486), 32 MB RAM, NCR810
SCSI ... nothing really special. gcc, binutils
