New snapshots and old binaries

I installed Cygwin b20.1 from a newly downloaded full.exe on a test box,
untar'd Mumit's gcc-2.95, installed coolview, untar'd
gcc-2.95-dev-ss.tar.gz, and compiled the simplest c++ app I could think of.
 While I was previously entertained by a ton of ctype errors, it now
compiles, but won't run.

bash-2.02$ g++ hello.cpp -o test2
bash-2.02$ ./test2
    0       0 [main] g:\cygnus\usr\home\test2.exe 1073 handle_exceptions:
    0   30303 [main] test2 1073 stackdump: Dumping stack trace to

C apps compile and run just fine.


Guess I will have to rebuild gcc-2.95...well, might as well go for 2.95.1
