OK, my suspicion lies with a difficulty in the windows relocation
code, but I'm not yet certain.  Here is how to proceed:

0) run saved_acl2 under gdb 

1) b fasload

2) r

3) Put your match-clause function into a separate file, compile with
   compiler::*c-debug* set to t

4) (load "your_file.o")

5) gdb will break -- type 'finish'

6) Still at gdb prompt, look at start address printed by gcl to
   screen.  Type 'add-symbol-file <your_file.o> <address>

7) c

8) trigger the error

9) gdb will stop, print a backtrace with bt

10) In gdb, type 'p/x *(char *)<address>@1024'

11) In gdb, type 'shell', and then 'objdump -d your_file.o'

12) Send me the results

Take care,
