I ran your 'bang' module on my machine, which is somewhat similar to
yours (an AMD64, running as a 64-bit machine). I let it run for about
a minute, no crash. I assume you would have said so if it required more
patience than that.

~sandbox > cat /proc/version
Linux version 2.6.24-1-amd64 (Debian 2.6.24-7) () (gcc version 4.1.3 20080114 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-19)) #1 SMP Sat May 10 09:28:10 UTC 2008

~sandbox >12erl +A 2 +K true 
Erlang (BEAM) emulator version 5.6.4 [source] [64-bit] [smp:2] [async-threads:2] [hipe] [kernel-poll:true]

That's R12B-4.
