Yesterday, I closed the bug that was keeping MLton out of testing.  We
decided it was not a bug in MLton, but rather a bug elsewhere that was
was causing the kernel to incorrectly terminate the MLton process even
though there was RAM available.  The problem only showed up on a 512M
RAM machine (or with Wesley's bad RAM).

I suspect the Debian web pages will get updated within 24hrs to
reflect that MLton 20041109 has made it into testing.
