SubjectRe: Signal 11
This is unrelated to the signal 11 problem, but something to consider
for "random crashes and segfaults", ie are you using this compiler
and glibc version combination.

There has a been a thread on the teTeX mailing list the last few days
about a (RedHat, but probably more general than just their rpms)
gcc-2.9.6 w/glibc-2.2.x bug. At -O2, it can miscompile

unsigned varname; /* "unsigned int varname;" is ok */

(no problem at -O or no optimization at all, and doesn't happen if teTeX
is compiled with kgcc).

Showed up in the kpathsea library (which began to split paths on
'-' as well as '/' after a user upgraded compiler and libc and
recompiled teTeX).
