Hmm. Broken as in ”will probably cause a SIGSEGV or SIGBUS“, or less broken? 😉
I’m wondering why nobody noticed this problem before. Is it possible that the
problematic instructions belong to dead code, e.g. are part of a function
that’s (almost) never called, part of a (faulty) generated exception handler,
...? Or did you find these instructions all over the place in the Oracle object
