The one that Chih-Wei is talking about produces a core dump with SIGBUS
signal as a cause. Who can assist with this, or rather, where can we mail
the core dump and more details about the crash?

If I’m remember well, no. We are developing on windows, and the result was a
crash of werl, but no crash dump. I tried on linux, and got the same kind of
errors. But I can’t remember if we had a core and/or crash dump. The error
was random, sometime bad tag, sometimes otherwise.

We have binary matching yes. Did your runtime produce a crash dump or core?

I already had the same kind of errors (at random) in a program which did
pattern matching on binaries. It was a bug in R12B1. 
It's fixed in R12B2.

Hi everyone,
I'm having some issues with Erlang 12B-1 getting errors such as
'size_object: bad tag for 0x528' in the nohup.out file. I'm running SMP on
Solaris 10 platform. Can anyone advise on the cause of the error? Thanks
