	If anyone is investigating this,
	add me to the CC list, as I'm professionally
	curious about anything Slolaris does wrong (:-))

	Try running truss -f -l -d -p <pid>
	or apptrace -f <program> ands mail me the
	result: we may be able to spot the
	difference between solaris and linux by
	comparing these with strace logs.
