There is always the chance that you're tweaking a bug in the optimizer,
but I strongly recommend that you first run your code through a memory 
debugger (Purify is what I use, but ElectricFence can also help find most 
of the usual problems) first.

If that doesn't show anything in your code, time to file a bug report.
Please see on how to do so. 
I'll be willing to take a quick look if you can bundle it all up.
