Wow. Bummer. Bad bug in the old gcc there :-(

I always build gcc-2.95.x with c,c++ to get the c++ libs so my installs
don't show the problem.

Unless some one can fix the old gcc (I doubt it!) there really is only 2
options:-

  - build gcc-2.95.x with c,c++ (not a big deal IMHO)
  - patch the nvidia drivers.
