Thanks Zack for looking at this.

Unfortunately, your new patch also fails, a least as applied to the
version I have at work.  Because of CVS/firewall issues, I am working
with the 11-13-2000 snapshot, which doesn't have your stringpool.c
changes.  I am pretty sure that the patch applied sucessfully though. 
BTW, is there a direct way of applying a CVS -diff to files using
patch?  I ended up breaking your patch into 11 different .diff files
and apply them each individually.

Line 815 is the check for page-alignedness in clear_marks
---------
static inline void
clear_marks ()
{
  unsigned order;

  for (order = 2; order <= G.lg_pagesize; order++)
    {
      size_t num_objects = OBJECTS_PER_PAGE (order);
      size_t bitmap_size = BITMAP_SIZE (num_objects + 1);
      page_entry *p;

      for (p = G.pages[order]; p != NULL; p = p->next)
        {
#ifdef ENABLE_CHECKING
          /* The data should be page-aligned.  */
          if ((size_t) p->page & (G.pagesize - 1))
            abort ();         /* Line 815 */
#endif
...
--------------
Attempting to compile with --enable-checking=no will segfault on the
same file.

I am flying out to California for Thanksgiving, so I unfortunately will
not be able to test anything more until Sunday.

Thanks again,
Kelley Cook
