I should try to narrow it down. But it sucks to not have a

yes - especially the ones that stop the program.  That's where something
like valgrind helps, since it's looking at things that might later cause
a visible problem.

If you're interested, I can check if the same problem appears
on a dedicated server which I'm running with my OS too (just
a bit older version) and give you a shell account for testing.

that might be useful, might not.  Mostly that's good for easily reproduced
bugs that require some analysis.

ProPolice may be the only tool that notices the problem (that may be good ;-)

:) The problem is that the author's communication skills are
not too great, especially on English, so the gcc people don't
really want the code in. But let's see, for 4.1 maybe.

I'm curious to see if I can build it on Linux, so I can see if it's useful. (I built 3.4.3 on Sunday to check on some stuff, and looked
at the latest 4.0 snapshot, but didn't install the latter since its
configure script didn't want to let me build only c/c++/ada - don't much like installing 200Mb of stuff I don't want).
