 Priority:  major       |   Milestone:  3.1.0                     
Component:  Core        |     Version:  3.0.3                     
 Severity:  Unassigned  |    Keywords:                            
 When I statically link my C-program against Geos, the program crashes at
 the very end.

 I have been able to trace it back to the static string in io/WKBReader :
 I cannot explain what goes wrong, but when I remove the static modifier
 (why is it there anyway?) and initialise the string inside the
 constructor, everything goes well.

 Before I linked dynamically, and I also got (for me) unexplainable
 Valgrind warnings at the end of my program. They probably come out worse
