    The problem is indeed fixed in 2.95... the problem is not with those
    compilers on sparc but that sparc64 uses an old compiler (DaveM
    recommends 2.91.66 for sparc64).

    Consequently, I sent you a rediff of the patch - this time without
    removing the compiler workaround. It should be acceptable.
