Summary0000385: mercury_compile.exe crashes during compilation of large fact table on MinGW/MSYS
Descriptionmercury_compile.exe crashes without giving any error message at all.

It seems that the crash occurs where Mercury normally makes the .int3-file.

The same module compiles without any problems on Mac OS X version 10.10.

Mercury-Version: rotd-2015-03-10
Steps To Reproducemmc --make --grade none.gc contextOfDataPoints
Additional InformationAs a workaround, I can use pragma fact_table.
TagsNo tags attached.

The compiler built from the source distribution (for 32-bit MinGW/MSYS) is aborting with error status

As discussed on the mailing list, the problem was stack exhaustion while parsing a very long item list.

Fixed by commit f2043fc9bd58b084701fc8e7618e0a5ccbf83d7f. It should be in the next release of the day. (It is NOT in the rotd for july 20.)
