I still se this, and it makes impossible to use rtorrent for downloading the fc6
This is on a fairly updated fc5, only the latest kernel updates are missing.
The problem is fixed by compiling with -O3 instead of -O2.
This is according to what the rtorrent web pages say about gcc 4.1.1 and
compile failures there.
Should be fixed with the 0.6.4-2 release.
rpm's are already available for develop & fc6, i'll push fc5 packages later this
