Yes, that's what I would guess.

Since sending the message this morning I've upgraded to 1.6.5, and so far the 
problem has not recurred.  This could be a sign the problem was fixed in 
1.6.5, or it could be a sign that I had a problem with my installation 
(remembering that Gentoo compiles everything from source on the target 
machine) which was fixed by the recompiling and relinking in the upgrade.
