Hi Michel, Hi Ruben,

> I am using under the same Debian and it is very unstable.

Believe me, I'm frustrated to hear this. Are you guys sure
this is just not a case of one of the following :

  1) netrom traffic coming in, but NETROM is not configured
     in your autoexec.nos ?

  2) aprs traffic coming in, but APRS is not configured in
     the autoexec.nos file ?

> My high-uptime is 2 hours with very low activity.

My uptime is over 8 days so far.

I don't know. I use Slackware 9.1 for my system.

All the crashes that I have looked at that Ruben reported
were indeterminable. They all suggested corrupted stack areas,
and such. No clear picture of where the crashes are happening
as far as GDB is concerned. That makes this hard to track down.

Is the CURSES lib any different under Debian distros ? I'm
wondering if bumping up the CURSES overhead would help, although
that is more a bandage solution then a real one :-(

Can you both send me the autoexec.nos you are using for
which these crashes are occuring ? Also, both of you please
send me your 'uname -a' and 'gcc -v' results if you don't
mind. Thanks.
