yes, that was my diagnosis too, but i have never looked any further
(even though francis has encouraged me more than once :-). we have
used our 64-bit machines mostly for batch processing (e.g. generator
performance data in the IJCNLP experiments), so i was not unhappy to
give interactive users a reason to stay away from those nodes ...
i suspect the crash may occur as the gc cursor is turned on in CLIM,
since the gc notification hooks (function pointers) are sensitive to
pointer size (at least i had an issue in the [incr tsdb()] interface
initially). a mini-CLIM application, just one pane, and a forced gc()
call should be sufficient to test this theory. and, if successful,
will make a fine bug report for Franz. ben, would you have time for
this? and if you end up asking about CLIM, maybe remind them of the
earlier PRs we have pending :-).
