But the bug really is in the compiler. Non -O2 optimized code jsut works
fine, the one with -O2 works sometimes bad.

Actually, I've upgraded compiler recently to have better C99 support, and
so far the upgrade helped.

I don't use 'spike' utility. It's a nice tools to speedup binaries, but it
has nothing to do with my compiler optimization bug.

Regarding those many bugs, which appear even when -O is used, I'm not sure
what to do. I'll try to downgrade and re-test.
