I can't really say anything about the memory leaking (I'm not a regular 
Termite user).

Regarding the segv's/bus errors, run the code under gdb and look at or 
show the backtrace, this should give a clue on what's happening. Compile 
with cc-options -g and with options keep-c or track-scheme for better 
location reporting.

Just to be sure, check whether you're using |print| or |println| or 
defining own functions using both the #!key and #!rest syntax at the 
same time, since Gambit has (afaik still) a known problem in the GC when 
calling such procedures (it is triggered only when a GC happens in the 
right place, so you'll only see it when you're calling such procedures 

People having time to debug (not me currently) might appreciate a 
complete example to reproduce the problem.
