[Openmcl-devel] openmcl quits without backtrace

I work mostly in MCL, but often I switch to OpenMCL to track down
bugs and/or to note efficiency issues. I've seen a strange error in
MCL with respect to this form/closure:
(let ((copy-htable (make-hash-table #+Ignore :rehash-size #+Ignore
(defmethod copy-top-level (ORIGINAL-THING)
(copy-one ORIGINAL-THING COPY-HTABLE)))
This is part of the library that my group uses. The trouble is that
the copy-htable is getting smashed by something - probably GC. This
error occurs after ~18 hrs of computation. So I fired up OpenMCL to
see if I could reproduce the error there. It takes only 10 minutes
for OpenMCL to crash and it does so without errors or a backtrace -
the process just dies. I have no idea whether the two problems are
related, but I usually have little (to no) trouble running the
offending code (and other code) in OpenMCL.
Any suggestions on why OpenMCL would crash in such a way?
MCL Version 5.1b4
OpenMCL Version (Beta: Darwin) 0.14.3!
Mac OS 10.4.2 Dual G5 2.5 GHz.
