As you noticed, this is crash is due to some changes in the compiler 
which ar only present in the CVS tree, not in the tarball I prepared 
last week. Indeed, the error on the MacOSX is of type sigbus or "Bus 
error", which is typically used when trying to access 32-bit or 64-bit 
data which is not properly aligned.
