I had a similar problem when fixing S/390 hosts. IIRC it was caused by 
the "portable" GOTO_TB macro. On translation the goto is patched to jump 
out of the block, which is something the compiler does not reckon with. 
You may want to disassemble it and check if registers are overwritten 
before the jump takes place.
