I've traced it in gdb, and I saw a function (called via an inline) being
given valid arguments but receiving junk arguments.  It looks like the
stack pointer got messed up (I didn't check, I was viewing source not
asm at the time).  Calling the function directly, rather than through
the inline (which only added an argument to the argument list) worked
fine.

Having your arguments corrupted during a function call sure looks like a
compiler bug to me.
