Since this appears to be from some randomized testing, is it possible to get our hands on the particular test form that failed?  If that test form fails repeatedly, that would be really helpful.

Also, I sent a patch to elephant-devel that alters memutil.lisp to use CCL's built-in foreign memory accessors (e.g, ccl:%get-long, etc.) rather than calling foreign functions in libmemutil;  with this patch, all the elephant tests pass on Darwin/x8632.  (On the other hand, Darwin is not Linux.)
