Hi again,

I think I have narrowed down at least part of the problem now. It is
related to a file descriptor leak in the code; why this would cause
the above-mentioned assertion failure, I don't know, but I'd guess
it's not handled somewhere (symbol loading?).

Or perhaps that assertion failure is unrelated to the crash that
happens when running the non-debug version of ocamlrun with
OCAMLRUNPARAM=b. Somehow it seems that ocamlrund gets the assertion
failure _much_ quicker than the non-debug version segfaults.

Apparently this also causes the confusing claim by the runtime that in
the event of an unhandled exception a backtrace cannot be produced
because the program was compiled without debug symbols.
