    You have probably written past the end of the str memory. Check if you are doing a strcpy or sprintf into str that is too large for str to handle. It may also be another variable around str that is being corrupted. If you make str larger, the problem might go away, but you really should understand the cause and code to prevent it with safer functions, such as strncpy or snprintf.
