Easily. 8-)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter the following program into foo.C

// The following program causes g++ 2.96 to seg fault.
// Found by dov@imagic.weizmann.ac.il
#include <vector>

class Ary : public std::vector<int>
  Ary(int sz=6): std::vector(sz) {};

int main(int argc, char*argv[])

2. Compile it with 
   g++ -o foo foo.C

Actual Results:

foo.C: In method `Ary::Ary (int)':
foo.C:11: Internal error: Segmentation fault.
