I've managed to trap the following segfault with xxgdb and gctorture() set. The
segfault seems to move around if gctorture() is not set, but has now occurred twice
in the same spot with it set.  xxgdb gives the message

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x71244 in RunGenCollect (size_needed=2) at memory.c:1027

and the source listing points to FORWARD_CHILDREN(s); in the following section from

    /* scan nodes in uncollected old generations with old-to-new pointers */
    for (gen = num_old_gens_to_collect; gen < NUM_OLD_GENERATIONS; gen++)
 for (i = 0; i < NUM_NODE_CLASSES; i++)
     for (s = NEXT_NODE(R_GenHeap[i].OldToNew[gen]);
   s != R_GenHeap[i].OldToNew[gen];
   s = NEXT_NODE(s))

P.S. If someone can quickly tell me the trick to make cut and paste work with xxgdb
in Solaris I would appreciate it. (I realize I should probably read the manual, but
if it is simple please let me know.)
