Subject: Exceptions and go32

I've found that I got a lot of exception 14's (paging faults) running
cc1plus.  It was ver reliable and happened on a lot of source files,
so I started looking for a bug somewhere.  It turned out that I had
the RAS precharge time set too low on my system, and was hitting a
marginal RAM chip.  Bummer.  Setting the RAS precharge from 3 to 5
cycles made the problem go away.  Some users have noted that adding a
wait state also fixes problems, and that these problems are NOT
specific to go32.
