Can you give a gdb stack trace? Compiling with gcc-2.96 sometimes
generate segfaults during construction or destruction of an object even
though the code may be syntactically and semantically valid. The kind of
problem you have seems only remotely related to that. Typically, the bug I
was referring to in 2.96 causes a new() or a delete() to cause a segfault.
Variable assignments can also crash everything, but that's quite unusual.

I only skimmed your code, but didn't see anything weird indeed,
which is why a gdb stack trace would help. (Don't forget to print out the
values, the addresses, etc.) Not sure I can help you, but somebody else
