[mercury-users] segfault with rotd-2006-02-24 in asm_fast.gc

A while back I posted that when I tried building Prince with
rotd-2006-02-24 in the asm_fast.gc grade, it crashed with a segfault
(Prince that is, not the compiler).

However, I've tried it in the hlc.gc grade and it seems to work fine,
which makes it look like the problem is specific to the asm_fast.gc grade.

Sadly, (from my point of view) that doesn't necessarily mean it's a
compiler problem :) We have a fair bit of C code in Prince and perhaps
it's doing something that isn't acceptable in asm_fast.gc any more but
doesn't cause any problems in hlc.gc, I don't know.

Anyway, if anyone knows of any issues that are affecting asm_fast.gc but
not hlc.gc it would be nice to know about them.

Best regards,
