your problems looks the same that I observed on XScale IXP:


I have tried many gc and thread configurations but have not been able to
find a working combination so I'm still using Kaffe cvs version from
2004-11-11, which seems to work best. I hope you have more time for
debugging than I do!

I also found out that old Boehm gc versions do not work on ARM:


I suppose Kaffe is not using the most recent version?
