Are you using woody or sid? If sid, then maybe Camm has uploaded an
updated version of GCL?

Anyway, for the value stack overflow, Camm proposed a patch to GCL which
is the bug database:

The proposed patch of Camm:
The C stack size is to limited. Apply following patch:

        getrlimit(RLIMIT_STACK, &rl);

I also suppose that you, Tim, have increased the VSSIZE.

The sources in a public CVS would definitely help track down bugs. ;)
