This is almost certainly a uclinux bug, in their modified version of the nommu 
C library.  You need to ask them about it.

There's a maximum message size for posting.

Arm architectures are actually things like "armv4l, armv5l, armv6l".  I did a 
writeup on them here:

Google says that arm922t is an armv4 instruction set with the Thumb extensions 
(armv4t).  I take it you're running it nommu to save the memory page tables 
would take up?  (How much ram has it got?)

GPLv3: as worthy a successor as The Phantom Menace, as timely as Duke Nukem 
Forever, and as welcome as New Coke.
