Ask p5p on how "stable" that is. GSAR (the current pumpkin) didn't intent
to make have listed as stable.

well, it should work (and does work) here, even with 5.6 (I do not test it
with older versions anymore).

Hmm.... looks very fine.

Looks quite fine (well, that compiler is veeeeery old and a lot of bugs
have been found in it).

But they took care of the biggest problem with that compiler. (actually a
perl problem).

This is almost exactly my configuration, except that I using a evry
experimental compiler :*>

So, in short, I have not the slightest idea what's going wrong. Some bugs
in 5.6, however, are known to corrupt memory, so I'd say try with 5.005
and later with 5.6.1.
