Many programs build using FPC seem to have build/execution errors with new FPC
3.2.2 release. It seems that 3.2.2 is less stable for some architectures than
3.2.0. However, we are still hunting some minimal programs that show

It may be the result of the above mentioned instability of 3.2.2. However we
need probably to understand what leads to that before we can raise a compiler

As I said, it may be a compiler bug, but we will need to have a small program
reproducing it if we want upstream to handle it.

Until now, mode issues where perfectly reproducible, maybe this is an other one,
or maybe related to a non initialized floating point coprocessor register that
gets in the way and leads to an invalid floating point operation
