Switching from Release 2.1.0 to Release 3.1 I found following problem. I had code like this:

typedef unsigned char uint8;

typedef struct StructDate {uint8 Day; uint8 Month; uint8 Year; uint8 Weekday;} Date;

volatile Date today;

void doSth(volatile Date* ptr)

void main()
  today.Day = 1;
  today.Month = 1;
  today.Year = 2006;
  today.Weekday = 1;

Looking inside the memory I saw, that today.Day is set correctly. But ptr->Day returns a wrong value (always 0x1b). ptr-Month etc. do return the right value, so the problem is only in the first field of the structure.
This error only occurs if optimization is turned on, if no -O is given to the compiler the code works. I only tried -m68hcs12 and -m68hc12 since I do not have a HC11.
