No particular reason.  Tim has a script that rebuilds it every night
from the cvs repos for the snapshot, but it doesn't replace the copy
that's in CVS.  He said he'll add that, which is why I don't check
every new version in.  I guess we should check in every change
or at least check a version in periodically.

If that's reproducible, you might have luck with gdb and you can
catch a stack trace.
