Package: g++-4.2
Version: 4.2.3-1
Severity: important


While investigating why omniORB 4.1.1 FTBFS on arm[1], I tried
compilation with g++-4.1 (4.1.2-19) and it worked.

With g++-4.2 (4.2.3-1) or g++-4.3 (4.3-20080202-1) it generates
code that crashes at runtime in the Prefix::newFile() method,
when invoked for the second time (even compiled with -O0). FWIW
the crash can be reproduced using a qemu arm box.

The code crashes in the method prolog:

  mov r12, sp
  push { r4, r5, r6, r7, r8, r9, r10, r11, r12, lr, sp }
  sfm f4, 4, [ sp, #-48 ]!
  sub r11, r12, #4
  sub sp, sb, #72
  ldr r3, [ pc, #244 ]
  ldr r1, [ r11, #-160 ]
  ldr r3, [ r1, r3 ] <- this is where the crash occurs

Please find attached assembly files generated by g++-4.1 and

On the second invocation r1 gets loaded to 0, hence the crash.
