Subject: [Caml-list] Freeze in 64-bit Windows Num module


Hi guys,


I have an issue with using the Num module in my Win64 OCaml compile. Whenever I try to operate on numbers that are too large it will lock up. For example, using:


string_of_num (num_of_int max_int */ num_of_int max_int)


causes the program to lock up with 100% CPU usage. This occurs in both native and bytecode programs, and it has happened with both my 3.10.2 and 3.11.0 compiles. The 32-bit Windows MSVS binaries on the OCaml website work, as do my 64-bit Linux and OS-X builds of 3.11.0.


Before I submit this as a bug, can anyone who also has a 64-bit OCaml compile in Windows verify this?
