Let's see, I sent in /bin/sh-based testresults on May 18, May 17,
May 15, May 10, May 9 (which seems to be the most recent 3.1 test
I made, I can't *dedicate* this server to testing gcc), and so on
backward. May 9 was my last 3.1 bootstrap attempt, so, yes, it's been
just barely two weeks since I had a successful 3.1 bootstrap using /bin/sh
(at least in my time zone, it's just 12:42AM...).

And you're absolutely right, I guess in hundreds of gcc bootstraps over
the years I never hit it before.
Sorry for the noise.
