[Xotcl] segmentation faults and bus errors

Hello again,

I bring bad news.  I am receiving seg faults and bus errors while
running XOTcl code.  I am running XOTcl 1.5.3 and Tcl 8.4 on both
Linux x86 and OS X PPC. I received the errors randomly on both
platforms.  This started occuring when I reloaded the source code.  At
first I thought it was related to Tcl packaging, but I mostly removed
calls to package require and package forget.  Currently I just use
source to load most files.   I am writing code generation libraries
and using Object eval so I may be doing new things with XOTcl.    How
should I go about debugging these seg faults?  Are core dumps useful?
  I'll try to write a script that reproduces the problem, but I
haven't really narrowed the problem down yet.

Any help is much appreciated.
