thanks for the help, felix! i found a fairly reliable way of triggering the bug yesterday, unfortunatly when i trigger it the only way to recover is to literally reboot my machine, kill simply wont kill the app that point, i cant even log out!

im using chicken 2.731, ill switch to trunk and compile with debugging turned on.

- Is storage consumption constant (top(1)) over a longer run?

pretty sure but ive only used top occasionally. ive been testing with that same little example that doesnt do much...

- Try to run with different stack-sizes. The stack-allocation pattern

I noticed yesterday that if i change heap size 4x larger than default i cant seem to trigger the crash. but when the bug happens there is no message about heap size running out so im not sure what this means.

- Try to run with different stack-sizes. The stack-allocation pattern

ok this is easy enough, so should i keep the heap fixed at the default size while i play with stack size?

setting C_heap_size_is_fixed to 1

ok i can do that in my thread init (im embedding chicken in an app)

We have to disable optimizations.

how do i do that?

thansk for your pointers, ill recompile chicken now, and try building on linux later today.
