I think I wrote on this sometime in June or July.  I went without internet access from 
about late-Feb/early-March through 
late-May/early-June.  Once I was able to cvsup again, the problem was there.  After 
writing to the list on this, I was responded to 
by the syscons maintainer [I forget his name, but I'll buy him a sake or Saporro to 
apologize for my memory lapse someday] who said 
that VESA is broken and should not be in my config.  Sure enough, removing VESA fixed 

The closest answer I can give is the time-frame from about Feburary through June.  My 
schedule is quite full right now, but I could 
do a little browsing through the attic as I can, and see what I can find related to 
both vm86 and syscons, as long as there are 
other eyes looking for it too.
