I have a similar trouble on my PowerMac 9500/120.   The MMA kernel
disappears during execution.  This does not happen on my HP and SUN, and
also PowerMac 8100 for the same program.   It seems that the trouble is
specific to System 7.5.2.   No additional extensions are not installed,
so it is not due to extension conflict of Mac OS.    This trouble happens
for some programs, but I cannot find out which kind of code are related
to it.  The trouble seems to be temporally removed by disabling beep
after execution;  I do not know why this works.
