Why btowc() function is going into infinite recursion in libstdc++.so.5?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Issue

  • Apparent infinite recursion in btowc() function libstdc++.so.5.
  • We've got an application that's compiled on SLES 9 using GCC 3.3.3
    and requires compat-libstdc++-33 to run (libstdc++.so.5). It's
    failing with the version of compat-libstdc++-33 included with RHEL 7 compat-libstdc++-33-3.2.3-71.el7 but works fine when using any
    version of compat-libstdc++-33 from RHEL 6.x
