Dear Gap Forum,

I use Gap on SVR4/386 (Japanese version) with intel 80486/60MHz.
I tried factoring the 17-th repunit as follows.
But Gap does not factorize it, and exits to shell.

gap> FactorsInt((10^17-1)/9);
   Gasman: last bag of type str and size     4 has overwritten the free bag.

Of course, Gap on Sparc station and Gap386.exe
can factor (10^17-1)/9 corrrectly.
This implies that the problem is in the machine (NEC) or
in the Japanes version of UNIX SVR4/386.

What the message means ?
Please give me any advice.
