[plt-scheme] version 4.2.5 crashes on startup

Having downloaded and built the PLT source, my problem seems to be 
caused by a bit of assembler code in the file 
plt-4.2.5\src\mzscheme\src\future.c, line 493. The error message when 
executed is '0xC000001E:  An attempt was made to execute an invalid lock 

This is way outside my understanding but perhaps the fact that I have an 
AMD Athlon chip not an Intel chip is the problem? Does PLT support AMD 
hardware? As I said it never was a problem previously.
