I have compiled STk on a Alpha box and don't seen this problem. I have not
make a lot of tests on this architecture apart testing the error procedure
(which I knew as "buggy"). In particular, I knew that an undefined variable
leads to
an error (core dump?). This not the cas in 2.1.5

The only problem I had with Alpha is that gcc cannot compile STk (it seems
that the problem comes from GMP which cannot be compiled with gcc). So I have
configured the system with
        CC=cc configure
and it (seems to) work.

If you can give me a piece of code which conduct to the problem, I can try to
fix the problem.
