Can you please try building with old gcc and its usual optimization
options, but adding -fno-strict-aliasing?

If the above "helps" (hides the problem), then:

Also, try removing -fno-strict-aliasing and adding -Wstrict-aliasing=1.
Per gcc man page, the default level is 3, which produces fewer false
positives, but might also produce more false negatives.  At =1, we might
see more false positives, but might also have some real issues pointed
out to us.
