There was an issue in GNU binutils on SPARC64 some
years back (I remember being one of the original
reporters of the issue back when 6.0 had just gone
-R).  You may want to check list archives/etc for the
necessary patches (there was a PR, too), and compare
your core files with gdb to the issues.  It seems odd
the fixes weren't incorporated into 6.2, so I'm not
sure - if you still have problems, post some
backtraces and I'll see if we can't figure out what's
Best of luck, Matt.
