yah i finally found information that do_brk wasn't bounds checking, and came up with exactly those two lines...then got the bright idea to look at do_brk in .23 vs. .20 that I'm running and saw the same three liner :)

Thanks much though, I'm sure this will help someome somewhere! :)

I'm still looking for a do_brk patch itself...I've got to patch a bunch

actual  patch.

There it goes ;)
