Lots of real C++ code is order-sensitive. This is a serious problem and
there are a couple of ugly solutions to it. The best solution would be to
teach the linker about it. The solution we are talking about here is just
a rather unconventional but beautiful one. Well, it was until yesterday,

Rather than that or changing the module ordering macros and writing
autoconf scripts to see if the global dtors are making use of cxa-atexit
I guess I'll just switch on -fno-use-cxa-atexit in CLN whenever GCC-3.x is
used. Hope this'll work for a couple of years...
Thanx and cheers
