I'm not sure this is accurate.  I used STL with g++ 2.95.1 (I think
the last digit was 1, might have been 2) on a Solaris 8 system.  I
used the SGI documentation, and found that classes the documentation
said were extensions to the standard to work just fine.  Not sure what
version of libstdc++ it was.

Also, I seem to recall having to problems with namespaces.  I think
the library was in std:: , and I know for certain that the GTK library
was in Gtk:: (the gtk-- bindings).

Maybe your Debian distro has an older lib than the Solaris system I
was using?
