  this is on Ubuntu 8.04 (I think: it's "Intrepid Ibex", I have trouble
keeping track of the numbers):
Linux bolker-lap2 2.6.27-16-generic #1 SMP Tue Dec 1 17:56:54 UTC 2009
i686 GNU/Linux
ben at bolker-lap2:~/lib/R/pkgs/lme4/pkg$ g++ --version
g++ (Ubuntu 4.3.2-1ubuntu12) 4.3.2

  I will work on tracking this down later, but wondered if anyone had
run into/solved the same problem ...  I've never had trouble compiling
these before, perhaps it's some new Ubuntu bug?
