That's a bit strange. The backtrace didn't help me much to understand
what's happening. Maybe we should make a last try with a self-compiled
ac++, but this time based on the current SVN version.

OK, then with GNU extension for now.

The makefile sets NDEBUG if weaving/building a release version. If
compiling with 'make TARGET=linux' then NDEBUG is not set. This may lead
to compile problems. But you can of course adapt the makefile to always

The development version of Puma is more stable than all releases before,
I hope :). We will put a new release on the homepage in the near future,
you may update from SVN until then.
