Description From 2002-10-31 10:34:34 CET
Perhaps not the most relevant nor interesting core dump yet, but:

Pike v7.3 release 58 running Hilfe v3.5 (Incremental Pike Frontend)
> Gmp.mpf(1.123456)->set_precision(2147483647);
cannot allocate in gmp: Resource temporarily unavailable
zsh: IOT instruction (core dumped)  pike

Looks like a call to abort(3C) inside the gmplibrary.

I've now added a reasonable precision limit (128KB), but the module will still
abort if it runs out of memory.
