What I your compiler?  The GNU GSL people recetnly had to alter one of their
regression tests as gcc 3.3.1 (if I recall correctly) would all of a sudden
consume all available memory.

Just a quick shot in the dark, this may of course an entirely different
issue... But if you can try an older compiler, that may be worth the few
minutes it takes.


Those are my principles, and if you don't like them... well, I have others.
