- have you tried gcc instead of xlc?  It's surprisingly easy to
  install for AIX.
- have you tried to turn off all optimizations (explicitly if needed)?

My AIX box also has ML 9 but I'm not using xlc but gcc.  And I haven't
seen a problem yet.

I could try building the shared lib.  But without knowing that you
could switch to gcc, I wouldn't help.  (I can't run xlc).
