    Thanks for the good news.
    The "prctl" test is a bit fragile and I probably should consider 
    removing many of the cases it tests.
    If that is the only problem seen, then I'd not be concerned.
    However, if you /do/ take the time to track down precisely how the prctl 
    test fails, I would appreciate hearing about it.
