I'm sorry, Matthias,

I would love to be able to help by providing this information, but  
unfortunately I had already started following the instructions in the  
gcc upgrading guide at:

The `revdep-rebuild --library libstdc++.so.5` command caused 25 or 26  
packages to recompile and I also installed sys-libs/libstdc++-v3 &  
removed gcc-3.3.x from my system.

fetchnews initially showed the same symptoms (as did leafnode, I  
discovered) although setting `MALLOC_CHECK_=0` as advised by Martin  
did allow both programs to work.

When recompiled the leafnode suite (using Gentoo's emerge command, of  
course) it was immediately fine, and so I am not able to reproduce  
the problem for you.

I just noticed that amongst the packages identified by `revdep- 
rebuild` was libpcre-6.3. So I assume the problem was that this  
(rather than leafnode?) was compiled using the older compiler.

I believe the ABI has changed between gcc 3.3 & 3.4, so was libpcre  
linking against older binary libs?

I'm not sure, but I apologise for wasting the list's time.
