Ok nice you tell me this, i will test this stuff nextly ...
IT is a ppc only bug i guess ?
also i have been experiencing gtk1.2/Xserver crashes with the color_selection
widget, i thought this was related to me running X on top of planar amifb, but
could it also be a egcs bug ?
i will post a bug report with strace and other stuff a bit later ...
