[racket-dev] error with futures and the compiler

The attached program works fine, and if compiled, it works fine with
small inputs:

[samth at punge] r tst.rkt 40 > /dev/null
[samth at punge] r tst.rkt 4000 > /dev/null
[samth at punge] raco make tst.rkt
[samth at punge] r tst.rkt 40 > /dev/null

But with big inputs, when compiled, it fails:

[samth at punge] r tst.rkt 4000 > /dev/null
compiled/tst_rkt.zo::6943: read (compiled): ill-formed code

 === context ===
raise called (with non-exception value) by exception handler: #f;
original exception raised: compiled/tst_rkt.zo::6943: read (compiled):
ill-formed code [../../../racket/gc2/../src/read.c:4751]
