Yep, so random that today's tests have succeeded.

I could be wrong, of course, but I'm more in the mood of blaming an
uninitialized variable or a buffer overflow somewhere due to its
apparently random occurrence, and since it is only happening on that
specific platform/compiler those also become suspicious.

Well, its a bit like chasing ghosts, now you see them now you don't ;-)
