For the record, I was wrong#

For the record, I was wrong. We don't find catch tags by searching the stack; we maintain a linked list starting at CURRENT-CATCH-TAG. This is good news insofar as searching the stack is not a precise science and it might not have been possible to fix things if we had been chaining through stack frames. This is bad news in that I can't find what's clobbering the aforesaid CURRENT-CATCH-TAG, so although I have no doubt it's possible to fix things, I presently don't know how. In other words, don't expect a fix for 0.8.14

In other news:

  1. I'm playing with Eclipse again: rationalisation for this is that something strange happened to sawfish on my last apt-get upgrade, so I think I'd like a window manager that Debian doesn't know how to break.

  2. More episodes involving minor skin loss; arm still aches a bit but seems to be getting better; no visible bruising. Bought new skates a week or so ago; left them at home this morning (it was raining) and only realised how much improved the fit is when I went out at lunch in the old ones to get a sandwich.

  3. I am 30. It doesn't seem to be much different.
