I wonder if you have an opinions on why this might be?  I'm getting
the impression there is something that is corrupting the stack or heap
in a subtle way and it is very sensitive to details of memory layout
and code arrangement.  But, I don't really know how to dig into the
problem and try to resolve it.

I'll paste your notes into the ticket.
