Ahh, how I've missed the GNU coding conventions.  8-)  Thanks.

Sure, why not.  It's easier (for you all 8-) than having you apply
patches for me.

Yeah.  It seemed likely that this didn't fail in the same way for
everybody -- otherwise I think a lot of people would have screamed by
now, and it would have been fixed sooner.

That's why I coded the test so that it didn't even *attempt* to verify
a breakpoint on the @plt symbol on linux, and that's also why i
verified that the issue existed on two different distro's.

I don't have a system on which it did not fail previously, otherwise i
probably would have investigated a bit further before submitting the
patch.  (Now that you have confirmed that the patch is reasonable, I
don't really want to spend time investigating, of course.  8-)
