Hmm. There was a bug that crashed SGI's in a similar way. It will get
fixed in 0.61.1, but meanwhile find the line in src/main/scan.c that

static char  ConsoleBufCnt;

and change char to int. 

This is just a guess, there are many places where a 64-bit machine may
run into untested conditions because most of the developer machines
are 32 bit.

If it doesn't help, get back to us with a sample of the crash output
and, if you can, run it under a debugger and see exactly where it
