That's why I looked for somebody to do a simple test (even though with
a "complex" application), to see how reproducible the problem is.

The crash (now I assume that it resides in gcc) depends apparently on
a combination of many variables.

Pretty remarkably, neither my usual gdb nor Debian's current gdb were
able to make sence of the crashes. Probably the thread states became
messed up too badly.

Fortunately I do not think any longer that musl is the culprit, nor do
I actually need gcj, otherwise have a workaround. Will not pursue this
issue further.

Thanks for your feedback, sorry for the noise.
