New crash of TN-Grid app on Ryzen CPUs, this time in SSE2 app version

1.5 half year ago I reported problem with TN-Grid FMA app which crashed on Ryzens: New Ryzen FMA bug  . This bug is fixed now, thanks.

Users of TN-Grid are now complaining that SSE2 version of this app is crashing on Ryzen. It affects Linux and Windows app versions. Here are two example crash reports from Linux app:

process exited with code 193 (0xc1, -63)</message>

SIGILL: illegal instruction

Apps crashed because of illegal instruction at 0x418754 and 0x41876a. I checked this with gdb. In both cases address is in the middle of other instruction. In first case opcode at reported address is invalid. In second it was decoded as SUB, and this instruction triggered segmentation fault.

Both crashed reported here happened on following CPU and OS:

AuthenticAMD

AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Eight-Core Processor [Family 23 Model 8 Stepping 2]

Linux Ubuntu

Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS [4.15.0-42-generic|libc 2.27 (Ubuntu GLIBC 2.27-3ubuntu1)]

Direct link to app which exhibits this problem: https://gene.disi.unitn.it/test/download/gene_pcim_v1.10_linux64__sse2

Link to thread on TN-Grid forum where this problem was reported: sse2 vs avx

Update: I was asked to add note that this bug happens mostly on Ryzen 1700. On Ryzen 2700 app rarely crashes, looks that I was lucky enough to see report for one of them.

Are there any command line options for this program? I am getting an error when I try to run it in Ubuntu?
