I was testing an installation of Mathematica 7.0.0 for Linux 64 bits, and I noticed that every time I evaluated the simple 1 / N[Range] or 1.0/N[Range] the kernel apparently crashed. Evaluating it in the textual shell (command "math") the program exits abruptly with the message "Floating point exception". Is this "normal" (then: why?) or is a bug or do you think is a bugged install ? thanks, g.
