Marcelo, use the [PIC] subject tag if you want people to read your posts.

Usually the compiler needs a few bytes of RAM for its own use (eg.:
interrupt state save, intermediate calculation results, etc).
Perhaps the compiler detects the lack of memory before it optimized and
removed its own unused internal variables.

It would be better if you leave some free memory in bank0, because the
common bank resides in the  last 16 bytes of every bank and it is a more
versatile memory.
Some compilers may not work unless there is some free memory in the
access bank.

How is your linker script looks like? That should tell you pretty much
everything what Isaac mentioned.

Hm, I'm not sure you can use the last 16 bytes of Bank0
that way. It depends on how your tool does the allocation.
Those 16 bytes are part of the "share bank" or "unbanked

Do you realy need those arrays ?
Or is this some kind of "test" of the compiler ?

I had expected that to be Bank0, but again, do you
realy *need* those arrays ?
