[isabelle-dev] [158c513a39f5] JVM crash

The following seems to be the most reliable way to trigger the problem:

while true
    isabelle build -b -c Pure

I did that and about 6% of builds with Scala 2.12.3 failed with
something like the attached log. I then tried the same thing with Scala
2.12.2 (double-checked "isabelle scala -version" to be sure) and the
same thing happened. I got 9 failures in 152 iterations; however, I
never got a JVM segfault with either Scala version; only these "silent
failures". That was on my Ryzen 1800X.

I then did the exact same thing on my laptop (with Scala 2.12.3 though)
and haven't gotten a single failure in over 100 iterations. So maybe
this is the Ryzen bug after all?

Lars, maybe you can run the same test on your machine and see what
happens there.
