May Symbolics thrive...

    I have one of the best X terminals on the market, and it never
    crashes Unix applications, so I'm forced to assume the Lispm is doing
    something wrong [...]

I wouldn't be surprised, but I'm not sure it necessarily follows.
It seems likely that the maker of the X terminal tested it with
Unix and did whatever was needed to work around any problems that
occurred.  It seems unlikely that they tested it with Genera.
So isn't it possible that Genera is following the standard but is
exercising a bug that Unix happens not to exercise?

Still, I get dumped into the cold load stream on my X terminal too often too,
apparently because I have too many Symbolics windows with :save-bits set and
the X terminal runs out of memory and Genera doesn't handle it gracefully.
