I have a severe problem with variables being "emptied" occassionally. I am not able to reproduce the behavior but this is basically what happens:
1) store list
list obtained from large symbolc computation in file
2) close the notebook and import the data to another notebook (same machine, same OS etc) using
Now everything is fine from time to time, in the sense that I can easily work with
list. However, sometimes I look at
list[] or any other part of it, the part is displayed and all of a sudden
list just returns
(* list *) and moreover also all other previously imported .mx content is deleted as well (although not used at that time). Is there anything wrong with my usage of
Export/Import or is it a bug? As said, it is not reproducable - but clearly not related to memory being filled up to maximum, yet maybe another memory issue?.
Is there a way to find out what is occasionally going on there?
