CMake doesn't hide warnings, just compiler lines.

I might try with LLVM v2.7 / Clang v1.1 to see whether it reports anything
extra, but that version (in Debian Stable) is really old, and typically
doesn't catch anything that GCC wouldn't catch.

Already at -O1?  Then it's probably when variables move from
stack to registers and some of them aren't in stack at all anymore.
Or it's because static variables layout changes.

Based on the backtrace info you provided earlier, I think best option is
to set watchpoint to "optionPosAddress" variable to see when it changes.

When it gets non-zero value, it's smashed.
