So this flowgraph is from the gnuradio master branch, and the E310 has
gnurasio built from the maint branch. Marcus Leech looked over the
flowgraph and didn't see anything that would obviously cause trouble
when running on maint, but he mentioned the issue could be related to
volk. The recent volk release fixed some issues with arm code. We are in
the process of making new images with uhd-3.8.5 and updated gnuradio +
volk this week.

In the meantime, try removing the file .volk/volk_config and see if the
problem goes away.
