They are exactly the same :)

gcc version 4.3.2 (Debian 4.3.2-1.1)

Really I think I need to dig further as I don't have useful

It seems to happen with ld as well btw (not sure this is related

[ 3366.005962] ld[19041]: segfault at 10 ip 000000007010248c (rpc 00000000701023f8) sp 00000000ffda87c8 error 30001
