Bug in fstream code and gcc-2 package?

The following example code works cleanly on all the platforms I've tested
on, except the gcc-2 package where it segfaults:

#include <fstream>
#include <string>

void load_file(std::string& s, std::istream& is)
if(is.bad()) return;
// attempt to grow string buffer to match file size,
// this doesn't always work...
char c;
// use logarithmic growth stategy, in case
// in_avail (above) returned zero:
if(s.capacity() == s.size())
s.reserve(s.capacity() * 3);
s.append(1, c);

int main()
std::string s;
std::ifstream ifs(__FILE__);
load_file(s, ifs);
return 0;


$ g++-2 -v
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i686-pc-cygwin/2.95.3-10/specs
gcc version 2.95.3-10 (cygwin special)

gdb doesn't help much either:
