problem with 3.0b2

I built STk3.0b2 under IRIX 5.3. My app, which works
fine under STk3.0b1, no longer works. There's a tight
loop along the lines of
        (do ((i 0 (string-length b))
             (b "" (string-append b (string (read-char port)))))
            ((= i doc-size)

After reading >255 characters the interpreter core
dumps with a SIGSEGV in STk_gc_mark.

   0 STk_gc_mark(0x0, 0x1, 0x10007bf4, 0x0) ["gc.c":173, 0x41b4dc]
   1 STk_mark_callbacks(0x0, 0x1, 0x10007bf4, 0x0) ["tk-glue.c":269, 0x437cb4]
   2 mark_protected(0x0, 0x1, 0x10007bf4, 0x0) ["gc.c":402, 0x41bd60]

Are there any patches to this?
