I just found another brainfart in the libc / kernel interface.  In the
believe libc wouldn't use the pause(2) syscall any longer I removed it.
This makes a number of programs like screen burn all CPU they can get.
I'll provide two fixes, one to libc and a second for the kernel and
either one will be sufficient.
