This is a known problem - but it's not the JIT engine at fault (the same 
problem occurs if you compile UAE without the JIT engine). The JIT engine is 
catching a segmentation fault elsewhere in the UAE code.

I don't know at the moment what is the cause of this fault. I suspect it may 
be the emulated filesystem, since the fault occurs when IBrowse is checking 
its cache, and stability can be improved by hosting IBrowe's cache on a hard 
file rather than a virtual filesystem. I have heard, though, that IBrowse can 
still cause faults even when using a hard file for the cache (although that 
may be due to a different problem).
