[erlang-questions] R15B segfaults in chroot environment

I thought I would post this out to the list, mostly for posterity. I
have R15B running in ubuntu 11.10. Everything runs fine when erlang is
run normally. However, if I try to run erlang in a chroot environment
(namely pbuilder) I get a segfault. This *only* seems to happen in the
chroot environment. I can solve this problem by adding the '-noinput'
option to the command line.

So:

    $> erl
    Segmentation fault
    $> $?
    139

while:

    $> erl -noinput

works just fine
