Just as a guess I'd bet this is the case.  Especially since SWISH-E
2.0.x worked.  If I recall, there have been massive memory
improvements.  Perhaps they haven't been fully (at all?) tested on
SPARC-Linux?  I'm guessing it must be unique to Linux on SPARC.  I
believe is running a recent 2.1-dev version on SunOS on a
SPARC.  Bill, anyone, any input on SPARC in general?

I haven't a clue who's tested what and where.  And, I only have access
to PowerPC, x86, and Vax hardware.  Unfortunately, I don't have much
SPARC knowledge.  :-(
