It's been a while but as I recall, the CRT stuff had code in it that
relied on switching to the .data section at a certain point. I could
have perhaps fixed it in the code by changing var = 0 to var = 1, but
don't remember why I didn't. It's possible the code was a tangle of
ifdefs and I couldn't test all variations.
