I haven't heard anybody having system crashes because of orcallator.se.
orcallator.se (the process) has core dumps, but that's another point.

Note that SE is not open source and was built by Rich Pettit and Adrian
Cockroft, the later being employed by Sun.  The SE interpreter source
code is not available.  You can use this with the Sun service :)

I would see if you can get help on the se-feedback at setoolkit.com
mailing list.  Please cc orca-users on that thread so we can see
what they say.
