Actually if your Debian is OK, Rebol does not dump the core. I know I am running Debian (and my Debian was not OK earlier)

Core dump and "hidden source" model don't have anything to do with eachother.

What does $ldd ./rebol produce? On my system (Debian Woody) the output is following: => /lib/ (0x4001f000) => /lib/ (0x4003c000) => /lib/ (0x4007a000) /lib/ => /lib/ (0x40000000) If you can see both and on output rebol (well actually libc) crashes. This is just because your system is mixing different versions of libc and because you probably have old libtermcap compiled for libc5. On my system there is no libtermcap installed. I just have made a link from it to libncurses which is compatible. To cure your problem you should get rid of the obsolete libtermcap package (unless you are using some software that depends on it) and use ncurses instead. Hopefully this helps, feel free to contact me on or off the list regarding this matter.
