I've got more cores that are even more weird:

$ gdb -q /bin/sh ./obj/sparc/tools/binutils/build/ld/sh.core
(no debugging symbols found)...Core was generated by `sh'.
Program terminated with signal 11, Segmentation fault.

#0  0x000175d0 in argstr ()
(gdb) x/2i $pc
0x175d0 <argstr+788>:   b  0x17314 <argstr+88>
0x175d4 <argstr+792>:   clr  %l4

I have no immediate ideas how this could have caused a segfault.

SY, Uwe
