I am, as I type this, uploading a new release. :)

The bug was that the toybox upgrade made -C (column view) the default,  
but if your tty has no defined size (which /dev/console pointing to a  
serial console won't), then it sees a size of 0 and column view had a  
division by zero error trying to figure out where to place the columns.

Should be fixed in the new release.

Try the new version. Or do "ls -l" or similar in the old one (anything  
but column view).

I intend to restart qcc after toybox 1.0 is ready.
