Robin, I don't know if you picked it up, but I sorted this out by
compiling with GCC 3.3.
I hadn't heard that GCC 4.0 was bad. In fact, most of Debian (though
not the kernel) is compiled with GCC 4.0 I think. It's the default
GCC. Dunno how they get away with it.
If it's compiler badness, there's probably not a lot you can do, other
than maybe raise bugs on GCC, because it seems fairly reproducible.
