Eike, thank you for your kind response.  I just now submitted a bug report
with the same title. I attached a text file which is the analyzed result of
a full dump file. If you are assigned this bug and would like to check out
the full/mini dump files, or need more information, please feel free to let
me know.

BTW, in my previous post, you can see part of the analyzed result.
