64-bit problems with Mac version

This is a follow-up my posting from Tuesday, which included a large 
dataset. The dataset is not necessary!

In Mac OS 10.5.2, with 64 bit Mathematica (either 6.0.1 with the 64-bit 
option turned on 'by hand', or 6.0.2 which is 64 bit by default), the 
following simple code gives a permanent hang with the MathKernel at 
100% CPU.


It doesn't cause a problem in the 6.0.1 32-bit version. I've confirmed 
the bug with another Mac user.

64-bit Mac version still not ready for prime time?

Would anyone with 64-bit PC or Unix versions care to check what happens 
on those platforms? I'm guessing this is a Mac-specific bug.
