Well, I don't get it. I tried sticking your solution in and I get:
ld.exe:mega32.ld:177: syntax error
Obviously I'm missing something. Your section definitions don't look like the others in the script. I'll attach the patched script to this e-mail. Perhaps someone can correct the syntax error and show me what I'm missing.
