Hmm ... works for me with gcc-4.1.2 on CentOS, and 4.5.2 on windows, and a 4.7 
snapshot on Debian.
Most likely there's some problem in the test (though I guess there could be a 
problem with gcc-4.2.1) ... perhaps locale related in some way (though the test 
attempts to work in a common locale to avoid that)?
