I don't have that problem running 1.0.2 SS on Linux either. I don't think
it is such a good idea to run it non-native on FreeBSD or any OS for that
matter. I've seen many strange things using other OS libs to run
things. Emulators and non-native libs are great fun for desktop stuff but
not for server end apps.

Build a simple Linux boxen with 2.4 kernel and 1.0.[23] versions of SS work
great. I doubt they are less than backwards compatible with 1.0.0. Could
it really hurt to try? I'd bet it just works, and easy for FreeBSD to
telnet, SSH, rlogin to Linux boxen and still have the same look and feel.
