  In theory, yes. I think I tested it so far on Red Hat builds with
1.5, 2.1 and 2.2 for architectures i386, ia64 and alpha.

  No, that's something I'm puzzled at, it had been reported
already and we could not find the problem yet:

 This seems related to something like:
   module A need shared lib l1
   module B need module A and shared lib l2
   shared lib l2 depends on a symbol from l1

and at that point the behaviour becomes unstable.=20
It could be that there is one explicit dependancy missing in the shared
object which makes the process unreliable. And there must be some memory
corruption going on (look at the string) but where !
