For some odd reason, the _get (buf, n) function in src/libes/raster/io.c
causes this error in my Alphastation because read(2) returns zero read
characters in a response to _send_ident (RESPOND). It should return at
least one char, shouldn't it?

It is D_popup in popup.c that makes a call to R_flush, which calls
R_stabilize, which then can't read the response and crashes.

Any idea where this bug hides?
