  Yes, this has just started happening to me, and I'm not 100% clear why.  The
problem is that __main is getting called twice, leading to a loop in the
linked list of registered EH data tables.  I don't understand how it managed
to pass the testsuite so well when it does this after installation.  Nor do I
understand why it's only just started doing this, unless top-level configure
didn't used to check for ada by default and now it does.

  For now I recommend uninstalling gcc4-ada, or just 'rm' the gnat executables
from /bin.  I'll have a somewhat better (at least to the extent of not hanging
like this) version out in 4.3.4-1 very shortly.  Apologies for the inconvenience.
