Subject: Segfault with humongous heap size
If I enter this in my shell:

  declare -x OCAMLRUNPARAM="h=3200000000"

every OCaml program I run yields a segfault.  I have OCaml 3.11.1+rc1 installed
on Fedora 12 x64.

Of course, that heap size, 3.2G words, is larger than the memory I
have installed, but
still, I shouldn't get a segfault.
