I had to recompile pan today with ssl re-enabled because I disabled it 
yesterday, just to make pan temporarily useable.

I set the breakpoints as you suggested above (strangely formatted in this 
reply!) and the last one was the right one.

I stepped flawlessly through the code while gmane's cert was added to my 
list of server certs.  It was a thing of beauty, if I say so myself.

And then gdb continued running past the breakpoint without hitting the 
furshlugginer assertion!  I just spent an hour debugging a non-existent 
bug :-/

Then I remembered that gentoo updated my gcc this morning before I 
recompiled pan.  The only thing I can think of to explain the whole thing 
is that gcc was causing the problem in the first place, and gcc got fixed 
this morning.

Oh well, it was a good refresher course in gdb.  I was getting very rusty 

Thanks for your help, and keep up the good work, please :-)

(But don't be surprised if I post tomorrow that the assertion is back...)
