Re: [ANNOUNCEMENT] Updated: gcc 2.95.3-4, binutils 20010425-1

Hash: SHA1

I've noticed that since the upgrade, a lot of utilities just hang and
my processor usage goes to 100%.  For example, compiling a simple 10
line program with gcc (gcc small.c -o small), gcc will just hang and
my processor usage (using Task Manager) hits 100%.  Another example,
telnet'ing to localhost (telnet localhost), just after I enter my
password, the same thing happens, hangs and the usage hits 100%.  I
can't CTRL-C out of it, I have to open another shell and `kill -9` it
from there.

Has anyone else had these difficulties?
