[erlang-bugs] Erlang make problem:

I am trying to compile OTP R12B on a 64-bit Suse Linux virtual machine
(VMWare). Somewhere in the HIPE compilation erlc crashes with a problem
in the OS high resolution timer. Running make again (and again) finally
compiles all the files. There seems to be a timing problem somewhere
that people also reported when starting "cean erlang", that may be
related. I have not found a solution to the problem other than trying
again. It finally works but doesn't inspire confidence. 


Below some information about the crash. The erl_crash.dump file is
available on request (it is quite large).


$ uname -a
