[syslinux] Booting second label

I'm using syslinux 5.01 and is installing our bootloader using "extlinux --install /boot". In the extlinux.conf I've specified that the kontron_wdt.c32 program should boot another label once it has been executed but it never calls the second label.
Here's my extlinux.conf:
append root=/dev/sda2 #.... more options
append timeout=120 default_label= linuxfoo
When I try to debug the kontron_wdt.c32 I can see that syslinux_run_command(..) returns -1. What could cause this?
I've tried the ifcpu.c32 application as well (which is a bit similar to kontron_wdt.c32) and it also cannot call syslinux_run_command().
I can see that syslinux_run_command() call create_args_and_load() but if I put any printf's there they're not printed to screen, so it's pretty hard to debug what's causing the error.
If someone knows a way to call two labels that would also work as a workaround for the problem I'm trying to solve.
