Since the return address is all spaces, I'd suspect you've overrun
a char array in the called function and trampled all over the
return address. With care you can jump to a known address - and
even to some code you've put into the buffer itself!
On sparc the procedure call sequence is a lot different and the
on-stack space for saving registers won't be used unless there
is a deep call sequence.
