MacOS: objdump: Reading section .bss failed because: memory exhausted

Dear Community,

What does the error mean? 

The error was introduced after a:  brew cask upgrade

The tools got updated from 7 to 9 -> arm-none-eabi-objdump --version

GNU objdump (GNU Tools for Arm Embedded Processors 9-2019-q4-major)  

2.33.1.20191025

lib-h3 % arm-none-eabi-objdump -D lib_h3/libh3.a  | 

arm-none-eabi-c++filt > lib_h3/lib.list

arm-none-eabi-objdump: error: lib_h3/libh3.a(h3_codec.o)(.bss) section size (0x800c bytes) is larger than file size (0xde8 bytes)

The file size of the object file is 3560 bytes which is the (0xde8 bytes) as mentioned in the error. Why would there be an error or even better; why would there be any relationship between the allocated bytes in .bss and the object file size? 

Many thanks in advance, Arjan
