Well, it may show you that this is the problem, but it won't really show you
where it's happening if the guilty function isn't already in the backtrace.
(I'm assuming we can rule out this being a libstdc++ or libc bug.)
Also, aren't broken 64bit->32bit casts all fatal errors under gcc4?  d4x has
been built with gcc-4.0, as had gtk+2.0 2.6.10.
