Let me guess.  You are running little-endian.  The instruction word
in memory would be 0x6a697406.  Do you think it's a coincidence
that 0x6a6974 spells "jit" in ASCII?  ;o)

The reported address range looks like that where kaffe builds its
JITted instruciton buffers in MIPS/Linux.  And, like I say, JIT is
somewhat broken for MIPS in Kaffe.  Which version of the kaffe sources 
are you building, and have you tried configuring with --with-engine=intrp
as I suggested?
