Technically you should put 'y' but anyway... the 'medit save' problem has
been fixed for Linux machines (read: me) but it seems that other systems
(like Solaris) still crash on the code.  I'm kind of stuck as I don't have
Solaris to work on but I'll stick the code on an AIX machine (the only
other non-linux account I have) and see what happens there.

(Admin there gave me a 5 meg quota so I stick everything in /tmp.) :)

If you really *must* run it, comment out the two free() statements in
medit_save_internally() but note that you'll be leaking some memory.
(or define I_CRASH in my latest test patch #11)
