I've also seen a bus error when one replaces the binary of a running program 
and it eventually pages in a page that doesn't match what's running; things 
that were previously aligned aren't any more, or a jump from the old code goes 
to the middle of an instruction in the new code.  This is one of the reasons 
attempting to open() a running program's executable file for write returns
