[ROOT] Different behaviour (i.e. Crash) of TString on Linux and Windows

The following little program has different behaviour on windows and on

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
#include "TString.h"

int main()
   TString W = "Hello World";

   return 0;

On Linux, the output is of course: Hello, World!
But on Windows I get a Crash (access violation)!!

Wenn I replace <iostream> with <Riostream.h> I also crashes on Windows.
There is no crash when I replace cout<<W<<endl; with cout<<W.Data()<<endl;

Unfortunately I am no Windows expert, so I cannot debug ROOT on Windows,
but if I should guess, it might be a problem in ostream& <<operator of

I am using ROOT v4.00/02 win32gdk with Visual C++ 6.0 SP3
