It's not likely that it is a compiler problem.  pthread_create calls
__pthread_create which calls the user function.  If the user function
returns it should it a __pthread_exit.  If it doesn't hit the
__pthread_exit, then that would mean that the stack is corrupted

That should be pretty simple to debug.

i.e., not a snapshot.
