| In spite of the fact that there _is_ some code size increase in 2.0.x
| compared to 1.0.x (due to additional functionality - multi-threading,
| etc.), your problem stems most probably in the fact that recent
| released versions of GNU tools (ld.exe in particular) don't correctly
| strip the debug information. The latest GNU sources could solve this
| issue. Please, note that it isn't a problem in our codebase, so
| there's a little we can do about that. The next version should
| hopefully contain a newer (fixed) version of these tools.

Ahh.. I'm looking forward to this then... surely this is part or all of the problem then.. Ok, so off to
sourceforge now, or wherever I google this latest CVS.
