 hi there

I wonder if I am the first one to get this problem

In common\lists.c

Handle NewHandle (unsigned int numBytes)
	void *memPtr;
	HandleRecord *hanPtr;

	memPtr = calloc (numBytes, 1);
	hanPtr = (HandleRecord *) calloc (sizeof (HandleRecord), 1);

Debug("memPtr:%d hanPtr:%d\n",memPtr ,hanPtr ); //arm-linux-gcc get 0
for both of the Ptr while arm-elf-gcc can malloc successfully

	if (hanPtr && (memPtr || numBytes == 0)) {
		hanPtr->ptr = memPtr;
		hanPtr->size = numBytes;
		return (Handle) hanPtr;
	} else {
		free (memPtr);
		free (hanPtr);
		return NULL;


Arm-elf-gcc is 3.4.0
Arm-linux-gcc is 3.3.2 (heard there are most problems in this version??)
