problem when linking against static lib of stlport

I've experienced a problem when I link statically against stlport. An 
exception is sent when I use sstream. When linking against the shared lib 
of stlport, there is no problem.

A description of that problem can be found here :

According to one of the developper, it's a problem that comes from some 

"So Petr advise looks good. use_facet might not find the facet you are 
looking for because facet id has not been initialized as expected; it is a 
classic problem with static linking as sometimes linkers duplicate static 
symbols of template classes and only one is initialized. So prefer dll to 
static libs and tell us if it fixed your issue."

Is it a problem with gcc ? Or is it a problem when one statically links 
against stlport ?

I have tried with gcc 4.0.2, 4.0.3 and 4.1.1.

thank you
