Hi. What would be the reason for

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x00000000006071de in yieldCapability ()
(gdb) where
#0  0x00000000006071de in yieldCapability ()
#1  0x000000000060bc6b in schedule ()
#2  0x0000000000609294 in real_main ()
#3  0x000000000060938d in hs_main ()
#4  0x00007ffff6b07eff in __libc_start_main ()
   from /lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libc.so.6
#5  0x000000000040a589 in _start ()

this happens in a program compiled with ghc-7.0.3
(and also, with ghc-6.12.3), running with +RTS -N
on i7-920, ubuntu 11 (kernel 2.6.38-8)

Could this simply mean "heap exhausted"?

Thanks - J.W.
