Hi Supreet,

it seems that you've encountered a bug in the gc. I'd recommend 
rebuilding kaffe from scratch with

make CFLAGS=-Wall

and then trying to fix the warnings on your platform in the gc first. 
That should a) clean up potential sources of trouble, and b) give you an 
overview of the code, in case that you still need to debug it afterwards.
