I've seen this happen under SunOS 2.3, and I think 2.4, though I've seen 
other 2.4 systems that didn't have this problem.  My solution was to add 
the following to autorun immediately after the first while statement:

  if [ -r bin/ ]; then
    mv bin/circle bin/circle.old
    mv bin/ bin/circle

Then edit your Makefile and, and replace all instances of 
bin/circle with bin/  The circle.old file is created so you 
can debug your core.  Rememebr to delete it when you don't need it if 
your space is limited.

This may be caused by an old compiler now that I think of it.  You may 
want to upgrade if possible.
