...Nope, it was quite logical, while compiling that lib, autoconf decided I've need support for large files and added "#define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS 64" into the config.h, which made sys/types.h to typedef off_t as a long long. My program that used that lib didn't define _FILE_OFFSET_BITS, therefore sys/types.h typedefed off_t as a long. Then I had a function inside that lib taking a off_t as the third argument, which messed up the stack when called... Not quite plainly to see or notice, but logical nonetheless...
