There is a nasty type-casting bug in erl_interface that affects 64-bit
An application calling ei_skip_term with a term containing a binary
will get undefined results (specifically, a core dump under Solaris 10
x86). A similar bug exists in the implementation of ei_printterm
Attached is a patch for both.
