[ROOT] Crashing before main()

Dear Rooters,

I have a problem in a large application coming probably from some dynamic library incompatibilities.

The program is crashing before main() is executed.

I am using the following 'environment':
- SuSE Linux 7.3 with gcc 2.95.3 and kernel 2.4.10
- root 3.05.07, generated with the options:
  "./configure linux --enable-table --enable-thread --enable-soversion"
- Mico 2.3.0 (a free CORBA implementation)
- Entire-X 6.1.1 (DCOM for Linux/Unix) + OCSLTK 1.1 (this is an OPC=OLE for
  Process Control built on top of DCOM)

The problem persits independent from the fact if a TROOT object is created. Im not using any ROOT classes (like TObject & Co. or TSocket) simply the dictionary compiled into one of my own libs. 

Using this rather 'old' releases is done for technical (hardware & driver compatibility) reasons.

The DCOM-stuff is using threads (intrinsically for IUnknown derived client side interfaces=callbacks).

This is the error I get (with/without debugger):

Thanks for any help or proposal to solve the problem.
