Hi there !

I have Erlang 5.6.5 installation on Slackware 9.0.

Im trying to do simple thing : divide by zero in erlang shell. Node crashes. The session:

# erl
Erlang(BEAM) emulator version 5.6.5 [source] [async-threads:0] [hipe]

Eshell V5.6.6
1> 1/0.
Segmentation fault

What's wrong?

Thx in adv,
