RTEMS Class example Timer : strange behaviour (to me)



More about timer example problem in Leon2 BSP :

I have tried different couples RTEMS toochain / RTEMS src :
- 4.9.0 from rtems.org
- RCC 1.1.1 from Gaisler (RTEMS scr 4.8)
- RCC 1.1.99.1 from Gaisler (downloaded in Feb 2009)
- RCC 1.1.99.3 from Gaisler (downloaded today)

the problem described below only appears with the latest Gaisler 
toolchain/src 1.1.99.x

everything is fine when using the release toolchain/src 4.9.0 (from 
rtems.org) or with the older Gaisler toolchain/src couple.

I haven't tried a more recent toolchain/src neither the CVS sources.

Pierre.
