It is possible that this might be caused by changing the compiler. Ian 
and I had a lot of fun figuring out which versions of gcc are broken in 
subtle enough ways so that certain "optimizations" completely break the 
64bit VM. I'd try using a different version of gcc (preferredly the one 
that worked before) and see if that helps.
