There was a garbage collector bug in Gambit 1.8.2 that prevents its use
for running Thomas.  The problem was in the GCing of weak-pairs which are
used for collections/populations.

The new release of Gambit, version 1.9, fixes this bug and adds a few
features unrelated to Thomas (better editor, online help, etc).

You can get the interpreter from trex.iro.umontreal.ca (our internet
problem has been fixed now).  There is also a "linker" kit that can
be used to build a standalone Thomas interpreter from the object files (.O)
produced by the Gambit compiler.

Hope this helps...
