Ugh!  Wait until it seems to work for a statistically significant
sample size, and for more than one person before calling it "happy"!

Also, I'm not sure looking at the code whether or not the PG_G is
truly significant, or just preterbs the workaround.  The problem
I've referred to in my "hunch" here is actually related solely to
the PSE, but with the recent code reorganization in locore.s, etc.,
it could have become more significant.

Yes and yes, but it could be pretty ugly.  It would be better to
get more data from people who are seeing the problem.  It may be
that it's just similar symptoms and more than one proot cause,
etc., so I'm pretty loathe to make any assumptions.
