    According to the report I have. Perhaps a bogus section qualifier does
    more damage than an omitted one. I'll get gcc / linker version, but
    this could be a combination of user error, a strange toolchain, and
    perhaps a real bug somewhere.

    Yes, I was surprised by this as well, and I'm still skeptical about this
    being the real cause. Still, this reportedly fixed the problem, and is
    certainly not a bad thing.
