I dont think it has a thing to do with your display. I had the same
problem. If you do a more /etc/termcap it will fail immediately. So
will cat, cp and a whole bunch of other commands. Strangely enough, dd
works. Weird huh? And /etc/termcap seems to be the ONLY file affected,
although I didnt persue this actively.

This started in 1.3.2 BTW ... I'm about to boot 1.3.4 and see if that works.
I've been forced to stay at 1.3.1.

This is a WEIRD bug.
