You're right, it was still broken :-(.  I think I've got it now, though.

Oliver Elphick was kind enough to arrange access to an Alpha running
Debian Linux, and I find that current-as-of-this-moment sources pass
all regression tests in either serial or parallel test mode on that
system.  Curiously, however, the system fails when you try to shut
it down:

Smart Shutdown request at Thu Dec 28 02:41:49 2000
DEBUG:  shutting down
FATAL 2:  Checkpoint lock is busy while data base is shutting down
Shutdown failed - abort

I have no idea why this should be.  Evidently there's something wrong
with the TAS() macro --- yet it seems to work fine elsewhere.  Ideas
anyone?
