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.
