Hi Kevin,

Not too far before we encountered reliability problems with PLT Scheme
in our 64bit FreeBSD deployment environment.  We posted a bug report
and core stack trace to PLT regarding the segfaults and socket
disconnects we were receiving, but it was closed as being an "os
problem".  However, since that environment runs several applications
written in various versions each of Common Lisp, Haskell, and OCaml --
all without a single segfault or other serious failure -- we had to
dump PLT Scheme.  Too bad.  We did like PLT Scheme, but business
demanded that we move on.
