Description Michal Jaegermann 2000-09-26 17:44:46 EDT
With aspell-0.32.5-1 on Alpha trying this command:

$ aspell -c /usr/share/texmf/doc/latex/sidecap/sc2demo.tex

results in the following output on a screen:

aspell(646): unaligned trap at 0000020000010998: 0000020000758544 29 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 00000200000109a0: 0000020000758544 2d 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 0000020000010998: 00000200007590f4 29 1
aspell(646): unaligned trap at 00000200000109a0: 00000200007590f4 2d 1
Segmentation fault

Not very useful or exciting.

This is platform specific (works on IA32) - Matt?
Comment 2 Michal Jaegermann 2000-09-26 18:33:14 EDT
Yes, I would think so.  I submitted that for Alpha.  You will not see "unaligned
traps" on ia32 but "Segmentation fault" you might. :-)
Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-01 11:32:35 EDT
Handing this over to Matt, who knows a lot more about Alphas than I do.
Comment 4 Matt Wilson 2000-10-01 12:25:57 EDT
The four unaligned traps are in the dynamic loader for any C++ application.  I'm
trying to reproduce the segfault now.
Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2000-10-04 11:40:17 EDT
FWIW, it segfaults on ia64 too. ;)
Comment 6 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-11-08 14:45:15 EST
This was fixed for the final.
