alright, this works for me, too.

I get unhandled write page fault @0 pc=1000228.
And objdump of hello shows the same instruction as yours, at PC.

Btw. i did execute on ARM directly, same as my actual project.

Now i revisited my project a found something.
When i add the faulty code in myClient, i find the PC with objdump.
But, when i put the faulty code in libClient, i.e. a shared lib which 
myClient uses, then i dont find the PC in myClient or libClient (but in 

So, the Error must happen somewhere in libClient.
But the question is why the PC is so strange, and how may it lead me to 
the fault?
