The problem with Xorg on amd64 is known, and I believe Jason
intends to look into the problem when his hardware arrives.
The prolem with joe appears to be new.  Can you build libncurses
and joe with debugging symbol to get more information?  Can
rebuild joe with electric fence?  Also, read the malloc manpage
for setting various flags.
