sc_start() also causes SystemC elaboration to occur if it has
not already occurred. It is quite possible that there is a bug in your
design that causes the segfault during elaboration, and that is what
you are seeing. You may want to inspect the module ctors of recently
added modules, run your design using purify, test your design on a
compiler/platform, etc., to try to identify
the problem.

        Yes.  We have SC code at the top level that drives data into the
SC/verilog blocks.

        Cadence, but I have similar problems when using a
hardware/software cosimulator (time won't start because of segfault).
When using the hardware/software cosim I get the entire design in RTL
and just use the SystemC top level to drive the data in and check the
data as it comes out.
