Hm, sounds fair.

I still tend to prefer the Norcroft compiler to the GCC one just
because its faster compilation speed. I've now recompiled my project
(original version without the malloc(0) fix) with 2.95.4 and this
indeed works!

So, this looks like some Norcroft + UnixLib issue then. Sorry for the
confusion caused.
