Actually the picture is improving, probably as I'm cutting in Ralf's
suggestions. 'hello', 'base_sp', and 'ticker'** seem to (generally) work.
'unlimited' runs 'TEST1' up through 3 tasks, and starts 6 tasks in
'TEST2'. 'paranoia' does not give any output #8-<. 'minimum' does not run,
but I don't think it's expected to.

 ** Well, I don't really think 'ticker' is running right - I will look
 at the SH-1 code as suggested.

Everything in this business is simple, ... after the fact. I haven't got
as much running as I had in 4.0.0, but it seems to be coming together, and
(naturally) a bit more quickly the 2nd time.
