Thanks to all the testers; here a short summary:

Petr Sojka, Martin Schroeder, and Apostolos Syropoulos reported a
Segmentation Fault (or Bus Error) on different SunOS and IRIX systems,
all using (different versions of) Web2C.

Phil Taylor reported no such problem with the VMS Pascal implementation.

This MIGHT (but need not) indicate that this is a Web2C problem (either
something Web2C doesn't handle correctly or a bug in the Web2C change file).
I'll look closely at the e-TeX WEB (Pascal) code as well as the C code
generated by Web2C.
