I tried running MCL 2.0 (not 2.0.1) in the trial version of the Macintosh
Application Environment under Solaris 2.3 on a SUN SPARCstation 10.
Unfortunately, it didn't work with or without SoftwareFPU 2.4.5.  MCL crashed
with a Type 3 error and SoftwareFPU reported an application conflict.  Typing
"(time (* 2 3))" in the Listener crashed MCL every time but some simple things
worked.  Would version 2.0.1 have worked (I can't try it because I only
borrowed a SPARCstation with Solaris for a short period of time)?  Or will the
new patch help?
