If you showed the program, we could have a closer look
at this and tell the exact reason. So the following is just
a wild guess, out of the blue:

If it's strcpy(), you're probably corrupting the stack
(or the malloc arena) by writing past the end of a buffer.
When you run under gdb, the debugger dynamically inserts
special instructions into the program so you can single-step
through it. This tends to slightly modify the memory layout
of your program, and you'll be jumping back to some other
