OK, I think I got it: problem is GCC3 wasn't using a shared C++ library
and GCC4 does, and probably that executable has a const pointer to a
something from C++ library that should be relocatable.

So far so good, though I'm still wondering if it's an overall bad thing
that should be catched upstream or is something Windows-specific. =)
