Dear GAP-Forum,

A crash certainly is a bug. As noted already, this bug has been corrected

in one of the bugfixes for GAP4R2.

However (as also noted) now GAP 4.2 will stop with an error message (``No

method found'') that indicates that the capability to test invertibility of a

matrix in this ring has not been implemented.

(The forthcoming release 4.3 will be able to calculate the units in this

example.)

Best wishes,
