Sound like compiler bug.

So, the problem is present on two compilers? Then it's not likely be to a
compiler bug. Are you sure that "-g" is the only difference in command
lines? Are there any extra defines or something?

Does it crash if you compile with "-g" and then run "strip" on the binary?

It's possible to try this:
1. Build application with -g (say, creating file hello)
2. Copy application to hello_stripped
3. Run "strip hello_stripped"
4. In one terminal, run "gdbserver localhost:1777 hello_stripped"
5. In another terminal, run "gdb hello"
6. At gdb command prompt, type "target remote localhost:1777"

After that, you'll be running non-debug version of binary, but gdb will be
using symbols from the debug binary.

Or, you can do the same without "strip" -- just create two versions -- with
-g and without -g and use the same trick with "gdbserver" and "target
