> "new". If anyone is eager to help me, here is the source

I doubt the problem lies in DJGPP, but I see more of them in your
GString class.  So we are off-topic here...  I would suggest at least:

- add a copy constructor, ie. "GString::GString(const GString& other)"

- be careful to avoid calling strcpy() on overlapping strings, the
good practice is to check "if (this != &strFrom) ..." in the
assignment operator

- the assignment operator itself should IMHO take "const GString&"
instead of "const GString"

- check bounds in "operator[]" to prevent overwriting memory past the

etc.  In short, "back to the drawing table". :-)
