those words are disturbing.  what toolchain is this?
is it a version of gcc?  is it free sw?

It is the gcc (3.3.2)/glibc (2.3.2) toolchain associated to the Fedora Linux 
kernel (2.4.22).

    The problem is that Exec-shield enables a different memory layout that
    breaks the emacs dumper.

cd you write an etc/PROBLEMS entry about this?

I can try to write something.  However I am not sure to be able to explain what
is exactly Exec-shield nor how it impacts the Emacs dumper.

Perhaps there is a GNU/Linux and Emacs dumper guru there that could help?
