Well, at least it isn't *that* bad. You should now be able to just cycle 
the compiler (cd compiler && make cycle) and then compile the test 
program to check when things go wrong.

It will be interesting to see what minimal code will trigger the 
problem. Maybe it will point to a more serious problem inside the compiler.
