3.0.4 was a standard SuSE 8.0

istream& get (char* s, streamsize n, char delim ) should read text until the next delimiter given, _and leave the delimiter on the stream_ (worked in 2.95.3)
>How-To-Repeat:

Example:
1. Create a file with contents "" (double quotes) and nothing else) - programm produces a seg-fault, when run through gdb it produces incorrect output (both delimiters should be ")
2. Create a file with contents "test" - this produces correct output in gcc 3.0.4 but not in 3.2.1.
- Both examples work in 2.95.3

// istream get
#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
using namespace std;

int main () {
  char * c, str[256];
  ifstream is;
  char delim;

  cout << "Enter the name of an existing text file: ";
  cin.get (str,256);

  is.open (str);        // open file

  delim = is.get();
  cout << "Delimiter: " << delim << endl;

  is.get(c, 50, '"');       // get character from file
  cout << c << endl;

  if(is.fail())
    {
      cout << "Failed" << endl;
    }
  delim = is.get();
  cout << "Delimiter: " << delim << endl;

  is.close();           // close file

  return 0;
}
