I assume you're compiling from trunk sources, right? Then we probably have
some bug in trunk compiler (binary writer/internal linker?). There's a
parameter for forcing external linker (in trunk compiler, not 2.0.2), you
can try that.

I can have a look at it later, but probably not before 2.0.4 is out.
