Hi all,

Back on Sun to GPC conversion after a year or so.

Things are going pretty well with gpc except on one point:

I run gpc on a Sparc Solaris 10 box.
As soon as the cpu gets a bit loaded gpc fails with the following error:

gpc: Internal error: Alarm Clock (program gpc1)
Please submit a full bug report.
See <URL:> for instructions.

If I restart it it compiles some modules and stops again (I use gp).
I searched for the words 'Alarm Clock' in gpc sources with no success so
I cannot figure what is the problem.

Any solution, clue, idea or patch is welcome.

The gpc I use is:
Reading specs from /usr/local/lib/gcc/sparc-sun-solaris2.10/3.4.4/specs
Configured with: ../gcc-3.4.4/configure --enable-languages=pascal
Thread model: posix
gpc version 20051116, based on gcc-3.4.4
