Greetings,

Using Snow Leopard 10.6.2 and Erlang R13B04 it's possible to cause a
kernel panic using the following steps:

1. Start new terminal window
2. erl +K true -s crypto
3. Cmd-W (close the terminal window without stopping erlang)

Alternatively, if you're running SL 10.6.2 and Erlang R13B03:

1. Start new terminal window
2. erl +K true -s crypto
3. Cmd-Q (quit the terminal app without stopping erlang)

This appears to work with either 32 or 64 bit builds of Erlang.

Thanks,

D.
