What is "Perf"?

Your test managed to crash the Erlang VM. That certainly shouldn't 
happen. However, the Erlang VM on Linux is quite different from the one 
on Windows and is much more battle hardened. I'd be amazed if your tests 
managed to crash it there. So please give that a try.

Also, if you can really reproducibly crash the Windows Erlang VM then 
please try the latest version of Erlang (R14B03 at present) and if it 
still crashes file a bug with the Erlang folks (erlang-bugs at erlang.org).
