Yes. That's what both g++ versions do.

The difference is g++ 2.95 gets it wrong when "Base" is a non-primary 
virtual base and Derived has at least one member variable.

Anyways, the case is now fixed. Instead of the call trace going 
KStreamSocket::KStreamSocket -> KSocketBase::setBlocking -> 
KClientSocketBase::setSocketOptions, I've eliminated the middle man and 
made the call to setSocketOptions directly. And since setSocketOptions 
doesn't call any virtual function inherited from KSocketBase, the problem 
won't show up again.
