[Openmcl-devel] Random crashing

About the only thing that I can tell you is that you called
SWANK:CREATE-SERVER and crashed in foreign (C) code at the 
address 0x00002B56B5BE22A0.  I don't know what foreign code
is at that address, but the lisp kernel is generally down
around 0x410000 on x86-64 Linux, so the address is most
likely in some shared library (if it's anywhere at all.)

On Linux, you can get a coarse idea of what memory regions are mapped
(and, when applicable, of what files they're mapped to) by looking
at /proc/<pid>/maps, where <pid> is the process id of the lisp
process.  It might be good to know if the address is mapped and
what it's mapped to, but if the problem is something like "a bad
parameter is being passed to some foreign function", we'd really
need to know what foreign function.

There's been a problem in 1.2, whereby foreign pointers (MACPTRs)
don't get invalidated when an image is saved.  (It's generally
the case that a foreign address is "per session"; invalidating
the pointer is supposed to make it harder to use a stale foreign
address.)  I only got around to fixing that in 1.2 a few days ago;
it was part of the problem that kept someone from loading shared
libraries on FreeBSD. I never figured out exactly -why- that
was part of the problem, but it certainly seemed to be.

If you can do an "svn update" and a (rebuild-ccl t) and the
problem goes away, great ... if not, I can try to explain how
to debug this with GDB, but it may take a while to track it 
down this way.  (I -would- like to track this down.)
