[erlang-bugs] Floating point exception (core dumped) in beam

I wonder how to debug something like this (on FreeBSD):

Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.5.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [hipe]

Eshell V5.5.5  (abort with ^G)
mypl_provpipeline:update_pipeline({versandtermin, "931631", "2007-10-14"}).
Floating point exception (core dumped)

Am I correct to assume that this is an Error in the Emulator and not in my
code? Where to start looking?
