This is fixed in the next snapshot.

Both a separate heap emulator and a shared heap emulator are now built. 
The shared heap emulator is started by passing erl the -shared command 
line argument. If hipe has been enabled, the shared heap emulator will 
not be able to run native compiled code though. (This since the hipe 
application use hipe_mkliterals compiled for the separate heap emulator.)
