the problem seems to be specific to GCC version 4.2; ECL compiled with 
gcc-4.1 does not have the problem. The versions are:

% gcc-4.1 --version
gcc-4.1 (GCC) 4.1.3 20071209 (prerelease) (Debian 4.1.2-18)
Copyright (C) 2006 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

% gcc-4.2 --version 

gcc-4.2 (GCC) 4.2.3 20071123 (prerelease) (Debian 4.2.2-4)

I'm afraid it's not currently convenient for me to make a test account
