Possible GCC problem/kernel problem?

From: Steve (quickey@cyberverse.com)

Occasionally the mud crashes and when i do a backtrace i get this, and it
doesn't just happen in create_money() occasionally in other functions it
will bomb out, and it doesn't always happen everytime in create_money().
I did notice it happen a few weeks after switching from gcc 2.5.6 to 2.7.0
I'm using Linux 1.2.13, anybody else seen/know why or what causes this crash?
