Try gcc/g++ 4.6 instead of 4.7. Maybe check if "S-Lang load path" (wherever that
is stored) is initialized in a sane way. I had a similar issue where an integer
was 0 all the time - although not being initialized with something useful -
which changed with gcc 4.7, then it was just a random value :)
