That's not good. To help me with this, please do:

- Edit the Makefile in fio, remove the -O2 in there.
- make clean && make
- Run ulimit -c10000000000 or something large like that
- Now reproduce the problem. Fio will segfault again, and produce
  a core file.
- compress the fio executable and core file and send them to me.
