Description of problem:
Please have a look at the referenced bug db entry for gcc. In it, I supply a
test case for a problem with C++ exceptions and dlopen.
This problem does NOT occur if I use a Red Hat official compiler RPM. I'm
submitting this entry in the hopes of learning how RedHat configures gcc
and/or libstdc++ to achieve compatibility. I have customers who stubbornly
insist on using things like gcc 3.2 on RHAS 2.1, and I'd like to support them.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See URL
Using GCC 3.2 on RHAS 2.1 is a bad idea, you need much more recent
binutils and more recent glibc in order to make things work as they
are supposed to work.
At which point it is better to use RHEL 3 which comes with GCC 3.2.
