Probably an old problem, but...
While running MACL1.3.2, on a MacII ci, 8meg, System 6.0.7, the
system goes into garbage collection, and after a while, we get a crash
(Bus Error). Options are to Restart or Continue (returns to finder).
Quite likely, GC has run out of memory, but why the crash? Running
a similar program on other machines (se30), the machine has just
gone in and out of GC until I terminate the process.
Someone a while ago suggested that a memory-manager bug in ci's
might be at fault. And that memory-manager-fix (an init) might fix it.
Does it? They said it was at sumex-aim, but it has been removed from
the archive. Does anyone have it?
Any help appreciated,
