You're loading a quad word (instruction "ldq") from address 0x120119feb
which isn't 8-byte aligned. "nm -n" on your binary should show you where
roughly the pc (0x1200023a4) is.  Since the load address of an alpha
binary is just after 0x120000000, it's somewhere within the first 8k-ish
of code.  Does gdb on alpha work well enough to set break-points?

Sorry if this is a bit terse, but I've gotta run to catch a train.
