The problem is with the Sun-3 implementation of _IntMod; it overwrites
a register and therefore leads to unpredictable results.  If you avoid
using _IntMod on the Sun-3 (e.g. by redefining % using _IntDiv),
everything should work.

Speaking of the Sun-3: who "out there" actually uses the Sun-3 version
of Self?  Who could not use Self if there were no Sun-3 version?
Please send me a short note.
