On OSF/1 it works for me as well.  It seems that the bad thing happens
somewhere in gethere() in exec.c.  Unfortunately I really have no time to
debug it now, I have to sysadm a large Unix network with 7 different OS and
I'll also continue my studies in the University and give some lectures
and that's a bit too much.

I looked at my rcs and I see that Peter's input patch changes only one line,
hgets() to ingets() so the problem is probably not in input.c.
