I know, it only happens intermittently (in a way that suggests an  
uninitialised variable or memory localtion), but have no idea what  
it's caused by. Valgrind doesn't find anything in an i386 to sparc  
cross compiler, so it's probably an error somewhere in the sparc code  
generator (or in a sparc rtl assembler routine)
