    Note also that gcc does sibling optimization, i.e. it will happily
    reduce the code at the end of
    int bar(a,b) { [...] return baz(x,y); }
    into something like
    overwrite 'a' with 'x', and 'b' with 'y'
    pop local stack frame, if present
    jump to baz

    which saves some stack space and is faster, but makes you wonder
    how in hell the
    baz
    foo
    stack dump you're seeing in your crash dump came about.

    (2.6.13 will turn that off when debugging.)
