Strange memory stats on AMD Opteron_x86_64 on Fedora Core4

Hi Erlangers,

While using Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.4.12 [64-bit] [source]
[hipe] [threads:0]
I'm seeing some really strange behavior with reporting stats.

erlang:memory()
[{total,18446548566807571279},
 {processes,18446548566799419082},
 {processes_used,18446548566799393690},
 {system,8152197},
 {atom,592425},
 {atom_used,560664},
 {binary,210749},
 {code,5789807},
 {ets,441032}]

The values for the first couple of minutes or so are correct. Something
like this:
erlang:memory().
[{total,6266812},
 {processes,795266},
 {processes_used,786930},
 {system,5471546},
 {atom,326081},
 {atom_used,307415},
 {binary,812351},
 {code,3007114},
 {ets,222344}]

Anyone have any ideas? There was a hipe fix in R10B-10. I'm upgrading
now, does anyone know if this is the type of problem it solves?

Thanks
Ernie
