Is that a PC you're using? Typically, bus errors happen to me when accessing misaligned memory addreses on CPUs which have such requirements (most notably RISC based CPU like Sparc/MIPS/ARM etc).
It should not happen on x86 CPUs. You're saying the compiler itself cores? Then it's probably a corrupt binary.
