If it is only the std::string implementation that uses the described
optimization the problem can be worked around by just rebuilding libstdc++
with _GLIBCXX_FULLY_DYNAMIC_STRING defined. If other classes provided by
libstdc++ use similiar techniques the best solution would be to get
libstdc++ built as shared library which according to Charles Wilson is
unfortunately a "hard problem" :(

I'll try to rebuild libstdc++ now with _GLIBCXX_FULLY_DYNAMIC_STRING
defined and will report back if there is interest. I would like to help
to get this issue resolved.
