problem ... and once again realized that the application was running
on OpenBSD inside the Innobox's VirtualBox VM.
Sun owns InnoTek now because I think they wanted a VM product, but
the product is badly broken.
When that VM is running, we end up with bugs that make it quite
clear that cpu registers are being corrupted in some instances.
We don't know how other operating system products continue running
when the userland ecx register gets clobbered on a return from a page
fault, but at least people should be aware that there is likely some
security risk from running that product.
That VM does not emulate the x86 correctly, (either).
