Quite possibly.   The last gcc-3.3 release was 3.3.6 after that work on
that version of gcc has ceased.

I've not seen any bug reports regarding miscompilation of flex, but I
have seen reports of problems on other tools.  It would be unwise,
however, to assume that they would be related without concrete evidence.

Note, if there's a miscompilation of flex here, then the generated files
must be different for a build of gcc to crash in this way.  It would be
a start to tracking down this problem to know what the differences are.
