Solaris x86 has similar bugs with the RTS (like mentioned in previous
posts). A summary: 6.4 branch from cvs changed the occurrence a bit - it
is harder to reproduce it - but possible - and now it segfaults (before
- 6.4.2 - it hanged).

To try a debug enabled -threaded version of ghc and follow
http://hackage.haskell.org/trac/ghc/wiki/DebuggingGhcCrashes is on my
TODO list.
