Actually both are needed as I discovered that the virtual memory 
allocator starts at the top of the Forth machine RAM and works down, so 
at some point it would end up clobbering some Forth internals :/

Can you try the revised patchset I'm about to post on top of SVN trunk and
and confirm that your kadb still loads? This works for me on my current 
SPARC32 test suite of Linux, Solaris 8 and NetBSD.

Many thanks,
