The reason is that there is special code that handles memory area overflows
and outputs a short map file to help fix the problem. This is not the case
when a "start address too low" error is triggered. 

It is rather difficult to proceed in case of errors, because the collected
data is inconsistent and may may cause the linker to crash later.

If you feel brave, you might try changing the error to a warning in config.c
around line 1893 and increment "Overflows" (like in the handling of "Memory
area overflow" ca. line 1945). After a quick look at the code I think this
might work, but as said before, you might have to fix problems with inconstent
data in other places.
