Not for much longer I believe !

If you use linux, man signal may (but probably may not) give you some

My guess is judging by the observation above, a memory allocation
error has occurred, the program called abort and the process died from
the abort, sig 6

I will try to crash it with my 1.4.0 (on linux), though I just
finished a pretty big job without any problems.
