P2/400 - Linux 2.2.17 - RH6.2 (glibc 2.1.3)
It seems that on some types of operator overloading the newest c++ compiler snapshot seems to generate an internal compiler error.
I have seen this happen on "new" overloading.

This is the code (there's no preprocessed code - since I don't include anything here).

void *operator new(unsigned long size,const char *curFile,unsigned long
curLine,const char *curFunction)

void main()
Beats me ;-)
