floating point exception with a loop

Hi all,

I have seen something very strange using the 4.02 ROOT binary version.

I have a macro test1.C:

void test1(){

   gROOT->ProcessLine(".L test2.C");
   for (int i=0;i<1;i++){

and test2.C :
int DoCalib(char * a_filename){


     TFile *f = new TFile(a_filename,"UPDATE");
     TNtuple *ntuple = (TNtuple*)f->Get("dataSP2");
     const int N = ntuple->GetEntries();//it is the origin the error 
     //  const int N = 5;//works well with that!
     float newindex[3][N];
     for (int Z=0;Z<3;Z++){
 	for (int Y=0; Y<N ;Y++){
 	  newindex[Z][Y] = -1.0;

   return 0;

When i run .L test1.C then test1()
i have the problem :
*** Break *** floating point exception
Root > Function test1() busy flag cleared Function DoCalib() busy flag cleared

The problems is coming from the definition of "const int N" in test2.C

If i put const int N = 5, it works well. And if i let const int N = ntuple->GetEntries() but in test1.C, put DoCalib("coucou");
without any loop, it works well...

Does someone has an idea in order i could let my macro test1.C with a loop ?

Thanks very much in advance.
