The only thought that I can offer is that RH has done something to the 
version of gcc released with RH 9.

Martyn and I had an offlist exchange last week and he is going to be 
installing RH 9 on his home system, if he has not done so already. It 
will be interesting to see if he can confirm or deny the behavior that I 
have seen with the "pre-fix" code.

If he can, then it would suggest that there is something with the RH 9 
version of gcc. If not, then perhaps there is something with my 
particular install, though I did do a "clean" install and not an upgrade 
from RH 8.0 and I have installed all RH 9 updates via RHN.

Note the specfic details of 'gcc --version' for RH 9:

gcc (GCC) 3.2.2 20030222 (Red Hat Linux 3.2.2-5)

The "official" release of 3.2.2 from gcc.gnu.org is dated February 05, 
2003. So there is at least some potential for distribution specific 
issues it would seem.

Best regards,
