I don't need any more information for gold, but if you have the time it
would be interesting to figure out whether there is a bug in gcc.  The
idea would be to find out which object file wound up at the end of the
section (-M should be able to tell you that) and figure out how that
object file was generated and why the string is not null terminated.
