If you're using an SGI compiler there, they're much more aggressive about
optimizing than most other compilers.  As a result, they generate flaky code
more often than many other compilers too.  In the Python world, whenever
someone says "hey, it didn't work on SGI!", the instant response is "try it
again but first recompile with optimization disabled".  That usually fixes
the problem.
