It crashes when you exit the shell, too, if you have zsh/zftp loaded.

See boot_ -- you always get a `default' session.

It way well be related to the stuff I posted yesterday about TCP session
management: deciding what zfclose() should actually be doing was one of the
big problems.  The interface between the zftp and tcp modules is still a
bit tricky.

Here's the patch to make zftp load tcp.  This handles the dependency
transparently with a working RTLD_LAZY, which seems fine with Solaris.
It should be pretty easy to convert dependency lists into code like this.

The only fly in the ointment I can see is with multiple dependencies: if we
load module A, then fail to load module B, we should unload A if it wasn't
already loaded.  Hence we should probably write a function for module.c
which is passed the list of dependency modules and handles loading in this

It doesn't unload tcp automatically, though.  I don't know how to do that,
given that tcp may meanwhile be used for other things meanwhile.  In
particular, it links in a builtin, at which point we can't really tell
who's doing what.
