It works on both of my systems. One is x86 with glibc-2.5.1. I have no
idea what could be causing that problem. The kernel seems to be the
common denominator since you get the same problem on the host. I don't
recall this coming up here before. That is a bizarre issue. Does `gcc
-Wall' say anything about it?
