I can see you have many fine memories of HP-SUX :-) I am not enamoured with
it either.

Adding the define didn't help, I'm going to do what Per suggested (offlist)
and print the loaded bytes to compare against a good system. I might spray
around a few more debug statements as well. If I get really keen I might
even gdb it, but I'm not sure what the code should be doing if it was
working.

Would the erl_crash.dump be useful for anything? I've never used one...
