4.2i Foundation Simulator - A simulation run over a long period of time causes a "General Protection Fault" error

Description

Keywords: FNDTN, Simulator, General Protection Fault

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I run a simulation for a long period of time at a certain point (i.e., > 5us) the simulator crashes and reports a protection fault error.

Solution

To avoid this problem, change the precision under Options -> Preferences. This will enable the simulation to finish without error.
