Yes, but usually it's simply that it's stricter and therefore refuses to
compile whatever. Additionally, KDE 3.5 is supposed to be gcc-4.x tested
upstream, as they are doing the gcc-4.x fvisibility stuff that had to be
pulled from kde 3.4.whatever.
Never-the-less, thanks for the datapoint! It could well be that this
isn't one of those "usually" things. =8^\ Now that I know it works for
you with glibc-2.3.6, and gcc-3.4.x, I can eselect compiler to 3.4.4 and
recompile, to see if that fixes it. If I can trace it, perhaps filling a
bug upstream may be appropriate.
Everything else seems to be working great, including one thing I had a
problem with in beta2! =8^)
I /did/ try temporarily turning off my filters, of which I have a decent
number, and that fixed it temporarily, but turning them all back on caused
another crash the next time I had mail to fetch. Thus, it's also possible
it's due to some strangeness with my filters, and tracing the individual
filter and redoing it might solve the issue. Again now that I know it's
working fine for you gives me reason to investigate further, since I know
it's not something everyone's running into.
Seems I have some testing to do, now that I've confirmed both that and
that I can revert to my bin-packaged beta2 version once a day or so to
get the collected mail. Again, thanks!
