I just built BB 1.0 on a Fedora 10 x86 box, and I cannot see any
such issues, even though the same header files are used.

I also tested in on a PPC6xx system (MPC5200 based), and it worked
just fine.

Something is fishy here, but I'm not able to reproduce  the  problem.
Not in native Fedora, nor with ELDK 4.2. Any chance that something is
inconsistent  in  your  setup? Like using different runtime libraries
than the one your applications were linked against?

In English, every word can be verbed.  Would that it were  so  in our
programming languages.
