That sounds like a compiler problem...

I guess you would be better off using latest compiler available in 4.2.x series - 4.2.3 or 4.2.4 that is. I had a lot of issues with different gcc versions for cris architecture (internal compiler errors, segafaults, etc.) and ended up using 4.3.1 that does the job for now ;)
