Let's see if you're right that arma 2 2 in a double-loop is the
active ingredient in the crash on XP. If so, then the following
minimal script should presumably crash too.
setobs 1 1 --special-time-series
set seed 77431
series y = normal()
loop p=1..2 -q
loop q=1..2 -q
catch arma p q ; y -q
(Meanwhile I've tried running the armax package on Linux, using a
gretl build with gcc's full stack protection turned on, and I'm not
seeing any stack-smashing.)
