*** GNU/Linux: Process output is corrupted.
There is a bug in Linux kernel 2.6.10 PTYs that can cause emacs to
read corrupted process output.
*** GNU/Linux: Remote access to CVS with SSH causes file corruption.
If you access a remote CVS repository via SSH, files may be corrupted
due to bad interaction between CVS, SSH, and libc.
To fix the problem, save the following script into a file, make it
executable, and set CVS_RSH environment variable to the file name of
the script:
exec 2> >(exec cat >&2 2>/dev/null)
exec ssh "$@"
*** GNU/Linux: On Linux-based GNU systems using libc versions 5.4.19 through
5.4.22, Emacs crashes at startup with a segmentation fault.
