Sorry for sloppy wiriting. What I mean is that `emit_block_move' inserts
a sequence of instructions outside normal program structure -- after
`expand_nl_goto_receivers' were called for current function. Expanding the
library call triggers call to `expand_end_target_temps' which int turn calls
`expand_nl_goto_receivers' again (wiping info gathered by the first 
call). Other variants of `emit_block_move' do not trigger extra call
to `expand_nl_goto_receivers'.

I included a C testcase in original message. With the testcase in file
`froc.c' I get:
hebisch@student:/arc/pom/gcc_t/gcc104/parm$ ../gcc-arm0/gcc/cc1 -O2 fproc.c
 print lvl1 eval
fproc.c:68: internal compiler error: Segmentation fault
