Can you show us what's on lines 130 (ish) to 160 (ish) of locore.s?
I did get some problems (see the duplicated inode thread) with
certain sources being overwritten by blocks from other files, which
was solved by renaming the corrupted file, and getting a new version
of the file in. But this was immediately obvious from the source
when this happened.
(I didn't report it as a bug, as I thought my hardware was suspect).
