That would be annoying. Is there some way to workaround this in the 
Mercury runtime? Perhaps try the call again if it fails?

Alternatively, what happens if the segfault handler is not installed?

Is it necessary for garbage collection, or only the detection of 
catastrophic failures? From our perspective, this *is* a catastrophic 
failure, so we would rather proceed without it than abort if possible.
