The exact same failures are reported under Red Hat 8.0 with gcc 3.2, a
configuration which is definitely not affected by the patch. I.e. the failures
must be unrelated. Your patch is in CVS now.

If you get a chance could you do me a little favor and try this under SuSE 9.x?

mkdir /var/tmp/junk
cd /var/tmp/junk
wget http://cci.lbl.gov/cctbx_build/results/2004_07_08_1744/cctbx_bundle.selfx
perl cctbx_bundle.selfx

The last command will prompt you for the number of available CPU's and then
start building Boost.Python and a large number of extension modules. I am just
interested to know if it goes through without errors (it does so on at least 13
other platforms).
To remove all traces of the test simply rm -rf /var/tmp/junk.
It will take about 1 CPU hour for everything to compile so you might want to
start the build before you go home. Please disregard my request without comment
if there are any issues.
