The 32 bit double precision version also crashes on my AMD64 machine.
If I compile only nonbonded.c with -g it does not crash, but the fr->tab14
is corrupted, already immediately when do_nonbonded is entered.
This indicates that there probably is some pointer access problem
in nonbonded.c.
But this is hard to trace when -g compilation does not crash.

We have efence, but this only runs with 32 bit on our old AMD Athlons,
there I get:
Program received signal SIGILL, Illegal instruction.
0x0811fd5e in nb_kernel_ia32_sse2_test_asm ()

Maybe Erik can comment on this?
