Bus error in kernel

I have Mathematica installed under Solaris 7. I haven't used it for a 
while, and I find now that when I try to evaluate an expression the 
kernel falls over. If I run the "math" command I get a bus error 
straight away:

Mathematica 3.0 for Solaris
Copyright 1988-96 Wolfram Research, Inc.
 -- Motif graphics initialized -- 
Bus error

The same thing happens if I reinstall the whole thing, or if I run 
./math directly from the CD.

Can anyone suggest what the problem might be, or what I might do to 
track it down? I'd appreciate a reply by email, as I don't normally 
read this list.
