Let me summarize the tests that have been done in this thread just so far:

gcc version OS  arch  result

2.95.3    Solaris  SPARC  ok    ([ade])
2.95.4  FBSD x86  ok  ([ade])
2.96   Linux x86  bad  ([ade])
2.95.2  Linux x86  bad  (spaze)
2.95.?  Linux x86  bad  (mkretz)

Now, it's not surprising that SPARC is ok. The weird entry here is 2.95.4 on 
FBSD -- what's special about it so that it doesn't crash? Right now I'd 
rephrase Thiago's original comment as "g++ 2.95.x generates invalid code for 
KDE 3.3.0 on Linux".

Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
