[erlang-questions] Crash in beam.smp, using x64 version of R15B01

It turns out this was EBKAC -- I had not managed to remove all old bits of
Erlang, so an old shared library got in the way and caused incompatibility.
On a clean machine, R15B01 does not crash. It breaks previously working
eunit tests, but I'm pretty sure that's my own fault :-)



Sincerely,

Jon Watte
