tcsh? Wow. I wonder if there's more tcsh users or ppc users.. heh.

Anyway, submit a bug so the other five tcsh users can get a fix for the
problem too.

Miscompilation caused by new gcc; fixed in vte-0.19.4-5.fc11, which will
be in the next rawhide push. Until then, get it here:

Another miscompile, this time in nspr; skip the upgrade to
nspr-4.7.3-4.fc11, or downgrade to nspr-4.7.3-3.fc11:
1. Fetch package from koji:
http://koji.fedoraproject.org/koji/buildinfo?buildID=73162
2. rpm --oldpackage -Uvh nspr*.rpm

of things are landing at once and some of 'em crash into the runway.
Still, if we stick to it we should be able to get these things sorted
out pretty quick.
