Ports can't be serialized, but Termite does port proxying (only 
optionally, I think, with spawn-{output,input}-port).

Your best bet (short of someone going to debug it for you) really is 
running Gambit under gdb and see where it crashes. Just run "gdb gsc" 
and from there load your program as usual (assuming you're using, or 
know how to use, |compile-file| and |load| for your programs), or "gdb 
yourlinkedprogram" or "gdb gsi-script" or whatever. Then "run 
eventualprogramarguments" then "backtrace" when it crashed.
