fakeroot's stopped working since upgrading to the new kernel, so i think
the emulation of the old sysvipc mechanism may be broken.  this is
on paer, running a 64-bit SMP kernel.  i suspect sysvipc rather than
signals because fakeroot is a heavy user of sysvipc and exposed some
kernel bugs before.

i'm not going to be around till monday afternoon (evening your time),
but it's pretty easy to reproduce -- just run `fakeroot echo hello'.

Revolutions do not require corporate support.
