As for the warning: I presume you are using version 2.1.5 of pari (or
earlier) and line 2925 reads something like


A quick fix is to replace the line by


A better fix is to switch to a recent version on the unstable branch, which
has more robust (and much faster) code. ( I.e 2.2.7.alpha, or through cvs
if you don't mind quick bugfix/update cycles. )

As for the Segmentation Fault, I am clueless [ should be quite unrelated
to the above ]. Does the problem occur after compiling a debugging binary ?
( ./Configure -g && make dbg && ./gp.dbg ). If so, can you send a gdb stack
trace, preferably to pari-dev ?
