Problems with 2.1.9 and up

Hi, I upgraded from 2.0.6 to 2.1.9. Apart from the known tty problems
with 2.1.9, I have lost some other functionality too. I've upgraded
also binutils, libcc, libg++ and the other stuff as suggested in
.../linux/Documentation/Changes. The only thing I've not updated yet
is gcc, because of it's size. I haven't been able to execute 'more'
any more. Also, I have some weird behaviours in other programs, one of
them is the game Maelstrom which now opens a *BIG* window on the
screen (encompassing a 4x2 virtual screen) and then draws only in the
leftmost part of this window. Also apropos is dumping core.
I now have the suspect that I'd rather have upgraded cgg *before* the
other stuff, but now that the damage is done, will it suffice to
recompile the utils and the libraries and reinstall them or do I have
to do something else?
Last but not least, I haven't been able to compile anything greater
than kernel 2.1.9, but I was warned of this in Changes. I just want to
know if I can put the whole stuff back on the right way or do I have
to revert to 2.0.6 and restart.
