	Ok, ours are plain:

32-bit 2.6 sparc:
$ uname -a; showrev -p
SunOS u2 5.6 Generic sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-2
No patches are installed

64-bit 2.7 sparc:
$ uname -a; showrev -p
SunOS elsbeth 5.7 s998_19 sun4u sparc SUNW,Ultra-30
No patches are installed

	This makes it **quite** possible that it's been
	fixed in a patch between 2.6 and 2.7.

	Henry Spencer once characterized Sun as the only company
	that needed a 32-bit bug number (:-)). I think
	he may have mentioned patches, too.
