Yeah, I was also looking at the vaddrexhaust test, but is that supposed
to work? It does pretty weird things at least, on 64 bit the function
effectivly does nothing because nr_to_fill evaluates to 0 there, and on
32 bit it gets a (probably #BF) exception which is not caught, so that
the test fails.

I am a bit confused, but maybe I just didn't stare long enough at it :-)
Hope you can sched some light on it.
