That's not what gdb is telling me.

gdb is telling me it's from a program called g++, but the name of distcc 
*is* g++. Besides the core file contains references to distcc, so it's 
actually the core file of distcc:

$ strings aimsalgo-linux-default/src/aimsalgo/core.20711 | fgrep distcc
distcc[20729] ERROR: Connect timeout

Besides this doesn't explain why g++ would crash when using distcc 2.17 
and not when using distcc 2.16 or when using g++ alone.
