Have you tried using valgrind to see if there are problems with memory
corruption in your program or in ACE?

I recommend you upgrade to ACE+TAO+CIAO x.5.9 (i.e., ACE 5.5.9, TAO
1.5.9, and CIAO 0.5.9), which you can download from
under the heading: "Latest Beta Kit".
The DOC groups at Washington University, UC Irvine, and Vanderbilt
University only provide "best effort" support for non-sponsors for the
latest release, as described in
Thus, if you need more "predictable" help for earlier versions of
ACE+TAO, I recommend that you check out
for a list of companies that will provide you with ACE+TAO commercial
