following up to myself... bad cabling.

I continued to add in warnings further up the call tree to figure out
exactly what was going on, and everything pointed to a cabling problem.
I replaced the cable, and am now working!

where should I submit my warning patches for remote-m68k-bdm.c?  (so
somebody else doesn't run into this problem?)

                  How else are unix supposed to reproduce?
