So the answer is "no" (no prob for me, now i can stop trying ;-)

... me too ... interested in crashing gcc4-compiled dom0 kernels?

That's what i'm doing. On FC4 it's "yum install compat-gcc-32", "export
CC=gcc32", but i also hat to strip "-mtune=pentium4" from "OPT" in 
/usr/lib/python2.4/config/Makefile (part of FC4's python-devel-2.4.1-2).
It costed me one year of my life to find out ... is there a way to strip
this from CFLAGS already in xen-2.0-testing/tools/python/{Makefile|
