Erm, eek, no idea, I think it's something to do with the MM system. I
seem to rember something about this some time ago (mid 1.3.50ies I
think, it was incorrect process size), but then it could be unconnected.
You could check if it's been compiled with -g, and wether it's been
striped or not (file /bin/bash to see about the striped or not).
