SubjectRe: 2.2.11: Complicated memory leak...

Not gcc 2.95 per se. RedHat 6.0's "gcc" softlink comes from the
egcs-1.1.2-12 RPM; Mandrake 6.0's "gcc" link comes from the
pgcc-1.1.3-3mdk RPM. IIRRC, gcc 2.95 has egcs 1.1.2 merged in (but I
am not sure what, if anything, gcc 2.95 has done regarding pgcc).

Also, you wrote earlier (about my successful installation under Mandrake)

>Perchance without vmware ?

The answer is that 2.2.11 under Mandrake works both with and without vmware.

I'm now deciding between trying to compile under different versions
of gcc, or (following Mike Galbraith's suggestion) using ikd and
enabling memleak. I'm open to advice regarding the pain/benefit
ratio of either course.
