troubles with ginac 1.2 on debian unstable

i was so happy about 1.2 release, that I downloaded the new 1.2 version 
of ginac, compiled and installed on my debian unstable machine, using 
usual configure, make, su, make install. I also have another ginac 
version 1.1.6-1 installed.

When I build a simple proggy using ginac, I use new (1.2) ginac lib and 
the old cln:

g++ -o charpoly charpoly.cpp /usr/local/lib/libginac.a -lcln

The resulting program crashes with the segmentation fault. Even if it 
does nothing. Including <ginac/ginac.h> and compiling the empty program 
is enough to produce the segfault.
The current installation contains the cln version 1.1.6-1.

Any hints?

I thought, it is because of version incompatibility between the cln 
library and the new ginac. Then i tried to download the newest cln, 
which, according to its site should be 1.1.7. But the download site does not contain this version...

Or is it because of different compiler versions used to compile cln and 
my own ginac 1.2?

Any ideas?
