Vectored Interrupt Controller causes stuck in alt_tick()

Hi, I am facing issues when using the Vectored Interrupt Controller with the Nios. Sometimes I experience that my Nios seems to crash and when pressing pause during debug I find that the system gets stuck inside the while loop of the alt_tick() function. Does anybody understand what the cause of this issue is? It is weird that if I use the default Nios IIC I will not experience this problem. Any help is appreciated.

Hello meds7 

 

i am also using VIC in my project and facing similar problem like "the system gets stuck inside the while loop", but i am getting proper VIC response if i remove my ethernet RJ-45 connector, which is suppose to be there for further processing.
