I'm not too sure about the problem... it may actually be related to
libstdc++, but I'm not sure... BTW, there's a lot of differences between
2.95.x and 2.96 (which is *supposed* to be experimental stuff leading
towards 3.0).

Actually, I've even found that if I try compiling with -O0, the link
fails because of internal g++ symbols, so that's at least a bug...
Anyway, the result from the limited time I tried compiling/running on a
RH7 box is that wierd things happen. I didn't investigate enough to tell
whose fault it is. I'm waiting for gcc 3.0 to come out and make sure
that it can compile Overflow correctly. Right now, I thing the only
problem with gcc 3.0 is some "fludge" I use in the which is not ANSI C++
and which gcc 3.0 screws up.
