Segmentation fault on Linux

Howdy!

I can report that using '--disable-hipe' does indeed work (at the expense
of optimizations). Are there any plans/hopes on fixing this, or is this a
fundamental problem requiring the switch to native posix threads (as has
been suggsted as another solution - I have not had time to test out)?

Regards!
Ed
