ok, recently events have prompted me to look at this again...

isn't the test itself broken?

it does this:

void *operator new(size_t sz) .....

int main() 
  A *bb = new A[10]; 

you define "operator new", but are calling operator new[], so it
defaults to the one in libstdc++...

if you change the definition of "operator new" to "operator new[]" then
the test will pass.
