According to Jim, a couple formats (MS SQL 2005, Office, RAR3) does not 
work on Sparc (probably endianness problems, he fixed alignment in a 
number of formats). They build fine but fail self-test. I do not think I 
have access to any Sparc now.

OK. I will do some grepping too in case we missed somewhere else.

I'll try to get the time. I'll do just the command switch for now.

BTW, one problem we have *anyway* with resuming from a session started 
with Jumbo-5 is that there were a couple of bugs fixed regarding 
[consecutive] dupes suppression as well as comment suppression in 
certain conditions (buffered or not, and external filter used or not). 
So the only really safe bet is to keep running Jumbo-5 for such a session.
