Thanks for the reply. I'm unsure if it's down to faulty memory because the machine is very new
and I don't get core dumps when compiling or running any other software. Also, in my experience
hardware faults have caused compiles to behave erraticlly, ie: bombing out at random stages in
the build process - this core dump always occurs at exactly the same point (compilation of the
curses module).

ps: sorry about not wrapping my lines in the original post! ;-)
