I too have run into standalone building errors where there was a dump of 
triplet numbers trying to built a complex app originally built under 
LC5.5.x in 904 or 905rc1, but as we have been able to build in 904 on a 
different computer (in ourcase it was building for OSX under Windows 
that through the errors, but building for OSX under OSX worked) we've 
just moved on and have not troubleshot the problem further. Just not 
enough time.

So I can't say if it was the same error or not.
