This postings is a test program for a bug in the 386 processor. It
seems potentially serious.

It seems that a new bug in some 386 processors has been discovered.
Mine failed the test and the system acted weird after running the
program. I think the bug messed up the stack or something. Everything
was ok again after I rebooted. I'm not real happy about having a
defective processor, Bill. You may wish to tell your 386 mailing list
about this bug. It looks serious.
