GDB output doesn't mean much to me, but certainly does for others here, 
but it's interesting that gcc-3.3.3 seems to be the culprit.  And don't 
doubt that based soley on my report, but the whole system here uses 
3.3.3.  Here are my versions for reference:

[dj at name1 dj]# ld --version
GNU ld version 20040415

[dj at name1 dj]# gcc --version
gcc (GCC) 3.3.3

[dj at name1 dj]# /lib/
GNU C Library unstable (20040408) release version 2.3.4, <snip>
