I was informed that the `hash table' error reported to the  
console occurs as a result of a not-too-kosher  
implementation of the `text object' (I am quoting from  
memory here, and please forgive if my static RAM cache has  
gone bad). 

I was also informed that the error is benign, that it will  
eventually be dealt with, and that it may safely be

I am running Mma on a NeXT 040 cube  and the following  
error appears on the
console several time during the session. Can anyone tell me  
what's going on?

The error message:

*** hashtable: count differs after rehashing; probably  
indicates a broken invariant: there are x and y such as  
isEqual(x, y) is TRUE but hash(x) != hash (y)

Thanks for the help,
