I have a hunch that relates to unexec.  Perhaps unexec fails to
preserve some of the data that __do_global_dtors_aux uses.

Debugging the details is the only way to proceed.

Someone else reported yesterday that a recent version of ld from binutils has changed the position of some of the data segments in ELF executables, causing problems with unexec. I think it is worth investigating if this is really the cause of the gcc 3.3 problems, as it could save a lot of debugging.
