It doesn't segfault until it's been running for a while.

The file is a bit convoluted, but I have collected all the library  
bits that weren't showing before. It crashes on my macbook as well as  
on the linux box.

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x080c4269 in ___garbage_collect ()

says gdb. Which of course makes sense in light of it not failing for  
a while.

I can avoid the crash by creating less garbage (making a smaller  
string -- 40 works for me) or by changing print to display, as  
previously reported.

both of those bits are at the bottom of the file.
