	A data abort occurs in com_start when web browsing with Mosaic 
	under X11R6.1. It seems to be timing related as it only occurs
	when using Mosaic. All text mode TCP applications work correctly 
	when running in an xterm. The stack bactrace for this problem is 
	as follows:

	This sequence is repeated several times on the stack trace.

	Run Mosaic under X across a PPP link after a while the X session
	will appear to have hung. Switching to virtual terminal 0 after
	this hang reveals the 'db>' prompt.
