This is a good question. The compiler folks have not responded yet so I 
don't know if this is an isolated issue in specific code or a more 
general problem which might rear it's head elsewhere. Unscientific 
hallway conversations have not turned up any other known F-9 compiler 
bugs, so this might be isolated to just one function. But in the absence 
of concrete information about the extent of the compiler malfunction the 
only prudent thing to do is to completely disable optimization on the 
belief correct program behaviour trumps performance, especially on a 
brand new OS release. When more concrete information is known I will 
consider rebuilding with different optimization.

If someone wants to be a guinea pig and run with optimization disabled 
only on packet.c and see if they have any anomalous behaviour then I'm 
sure we would all benefit from that experiment, however I cannot in good 
conscience push such a package into general distribution at this stage.
