It's the new recursive decent C++ language parser in GCC 3.4.0, which is
better in checking conformance than the implementor of the hash functions
was.  ;-)

It's been fixed in CLN-1.1.6, released in January this year.  CLN-1.1.7 is
the current release.  May the reason you're not aware of these releases be
related to you checking the wrong FTP sites?  I've stopped advertising
anything but <ftp://ftpthep.physik.uni-mainz.de/pub/gnu/> since I realized
that they are extremely slooow, the reason being the resposible persons
being travelling and/or their mailboxes completely drowned in SPAM.
