Ah, did you mean malfunctioning RAM as in "hardware defect"?

But shouldn't it be then less easy to reproduce as different memory
areas should be in use when trying it a day later or so?

The machine is a Xen DomU virtual machine btw. -- not sure if that
makes a difference here.

If ansi2knr or gcc 4.7 vs 4.8 doesn't change anything there, there
should be no difference in compile time options between to 5.0.2
compilation which segfaults and the one which doesn't.
