Sure. Whoever shipped the machines to us didn't use the default RedHat
kernel, they used a patched up 2.0.31 deviant. I don't know if you
remember, but 2.0.31 had some _serious_ bugs that got fixed in 2.0.32. I
am currently happily running 2.0.33+alpha_patches.

Aha I suspected libg++, I will perform some egcs library extraction :)

Sorry :) As recompense I will provide an rpm that fixes c++ under RH5.0,
if I have any luck. I'm surprised there is no official update since it's a
serious problem.
