This seems like another stack-smash-protector bug and still lives
in our compiler, only triggered when you use -O(s|[2-9]) flags AND
-march flag (which defaults to pentiumpro) .

If you do one of the following and the problem disappears:
 - add -fno-stack-smash-protector to CFLAGS
 - change prefix[] in function FindExec() shown below to a static array
   so as there's no char array in the local parameter. char array of
   size more than 8 bytes on the stack can trigger the bug.

static int
FindExec(struct bundle *bundle, struct cmdtab const *cmds, int argc, int argn,
         char const *const *argv, struct prompt *prompt, struct datalink *cx)
  struct cmdtab const *cmd;
  int val = 1;
  int nmatch;
  struct cmdargs arg;
  char prefix[100];

I havn't managed to trim down the source code to a handy size yet.
