Hi Harald,

    Any ideas what may have gone wrong?
    Maybe I need to recompile with optimization turned down?

Yes, it's most likely a compiler bug.
http://tug.org/texlive/bugs.html has a link to some fixed binaries, if
you want them.  Using a different compiler (or compiler version) or
turning off optimization will probably also work.
