Hi Steven,

Thanks for taking the time to make this patch. Against 1.37.0, it does
not fix the problem. I will check out trunk now to see if they pass for
me on trunk as well. Can you please tell me the output of CC -V? Mine is:

CC: Sun C++ 5.9 SunOS_i386 Patch 124864-04 2008/04/16

Which is not the latest, afaik.
