Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

        Thanks to Eli Zaretskii and Richard Stallman for responding to my
original request.  However, the problem still exists.  Here is my original

        Richard suggested reverting from GCC 4.0.1 to an earlier
version.  We tried GCC 3.4.3 (the last version prior to 4.0.1 that we
had installed).  I cleared out emacs and reinstalled.  The same
problem occurs.

        Eli suggested turning optimization off.  We tried that (with
GCC 3.4.3).  The problem persists.  I notice that the makefiles keep
trying the -O2 option; I don't know if my -O0 is overriding that or is
being overriden.

        I have attached a transcript of the installation of emacs using
gcc -O0 and a transcript of using gdb on the core file.

        Thank you for your help.

                                                Larry Griffith
