[Linux-ia64] gcc 0925+patch22 -> as warnings: WAW dependencies

I'm using the 0925 toolchain with gcc version 2.96-ia64-000717 snap
000925 with the patch in the README to allow it to operate on my stock
glibc 2.1.3 Turbolinux install.

My program now seg faults in an as yet to be determined location (leaves
no stack and all registers are "0" according to gdb... joy).  During the
compile, with "gcc -O", I got a number of the following warnings.
Should I be concerned?  Would passing -xauto to "as" help?  I'm not sure
what to make of the warnings; the first one seems to be worried about
the two stores through [r18] (but I don't understand what "resource
number is 45" is trying to tell me).  The second, I'm not sure about
since I don't see any conflifts with r46 or r14 anywhere in the
vicinity.  (though at least in that case "resource is 46" matches the
register in the flagged instruction).
