IIRC you've had some issues with ticker test for pc386 BSP on CVS head 
with latest tool-chain. I remember you've been talking about 
miscompilation. Now, I've used vanilla gcc4.0.2, vanilla newlib1.14.0 and 
binutils 2.16.1 + binutils-2.16.1-rtems-20050816.diff patch. I've compiled 
pc386 BSP from today sources and while testing I've found that ticker.exe 
prints first four lines:

TA1 - tm_get - 09:00:00   12/31/1988
TA2 - tm_get - 09:00:00   12/31/1988
TA3 - tm_get - 09:00:00   12/31/1988

then "blocks", but it seems processor is strangely "working" since
after some time I see it is corrupting content of the console (VGA)
RAM. i.e. I see few random chars with few random colors spread over
the screen.

My question is: have you already solved this your "ticker miscompilation" 
issue or is it still unsolved and I'm hitting exactly this issue?
