Which compliation did you use?  MacPorts, Fink, Mike Kronenberg or another.

Is there a demo available of this program?  I would like to try this with 10.5.7/2.3.3/Mike Kronenberg's build environment.

Do you get a debug dump as well?

This was fixed in Wine as well.  I'm doubting that there is a multiprocessor problem, but it is possible.  I know of no tool that does this for MacOSX.
