Illegal Instruction (SIGILL)

The code I submitted for problem 200 resulted in a runtime error, apparently due to an illegal instruction. I've never received SIGILL from the judge before and can't find anything about it in any other threads here. Has anyone had experience with this or have any suggestions for avoiding this problem?

I can post the offending code if someone would like to see it.

I just resubmitted the same code and it got accepted. Must've been a problem server-side.

SIGILL can be caused by an array out of bounds, i.e. memory containing code is overwritten with garbage and then executed.
