No, I can't.  (I only have a 32-bit machine.)  I've added a unit test
that runs Nils' code.  If others start reporting segfaults we're in
business ;)

I've fixed some bugs in the handling of data type arguments and added a
small unit test for tocsc() conversion with complex data types.  This is
unlikely to fix the segfault problem though ...
