Sorry for replying to old messages but the bug has appeared again in a 
separate case the bug seems to be introduced in

The test code is as follows
.syntax unified 

.global bug; 

.align 4 


         adr     r3, bug 

.size bug, .-bug 

.type bug 2; // This changes offset from 4 to 3 in 
//arm-linux-gnueabi-as  -march=armv7-m -c -o bug.o bug.S && 
arm-linux-gnueabi-objdump --disassemble=bug bug.o
