When we decided to use gcc on hpux, aCC did not support all those boost
libs we are using. Now i'm just surprised to hear that gcc on ia64-hpux
might not be a release platform for boost.

Well, first it looked like that whe have a very similar problem with our
code than in the shared_ptr_test (did not dig deeper into both yet):

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault
  si_code: 1 - SEGV_MAPERR - Address not mapped to object.
0x5c17e30 in <unknown_procedure> ()

But now, as the shared_ptr_test works with -O2 (at least for me), I just
tried our code with -O2, and it still does not work. So it also could be
another (gcc?)problem than for the shared_ptr_test.
Btw. I'm using a self-compiled gcc-3.4.5 with a few selected patches,
and GNU-as but native ld.

PS: Where is those boost test page ?
I have seen it before, but cannot find it anymore...
