NB: if you'd like me to upload 4.5.1 to Debian-unstable, and/or the CVS
head to Debian-experimental, just say so.

I will.

On the SMP system it passes about 10% of the time, 40% hangs, and the
rest crashes with "umoven:no such process" _and_ "[tcb table full]".

On my single-CPU system, half of the time it passes, the rest dies with
"[tcb table full]" (no "umoven" error).

Needless to say, I don't like nondeterminism.

I'll report what, if anything, changes with CVS head.
