Static objects not getting initialized properly.

I have a static constant object and have initialized in the corresponding cpp file. This goes in a shared library.
the declaration and definition of the variable is as below..

------header file -------------
class LCMAspect {

int e;
std::string name;

enum {
} ;

static const LCMAspect unknown;

---------cpp file ------------------
const LCMAspect LCMAspect::unknown(LCMAspect::unknown_e, "unknown");

Now from another class in the same module, I am using something like

LCMDelayModeAspect::LCMDelayModeAspect ( ): LCMAspect(LCMAspect::none) {}

Now when my application tries to load this library during run time, it gives segmentation fault, where I am trying to access the std::string name field of the static object LCMAspect::none.

The same code work fine with the arm compiler.

On tracking the segmentation fault using GDB, I am getting something like this....

(gdb) bt
#0 0xb7a3dedf in std::basic_string, std::allocator >::basic_string () from /usr/lib/
#1 0xb7c6a0c8 in LCMAspect::str (this=0x815ad70) at ../src/MAspect.cpp:55

#8 0xb7c7e2b6 in __do_global_ctors_aux () from /usr/local/lib/
#9 0xb7c67e61 in _init () from /usr/local/lib/
#10 0xb7f76373 in ?? () from /lib/

the problem i felt is that the static object constructor is not called,

ny one to help me out.. i m really messed up.. ny sort of help is of worth thanks..

I am using g++4.1.2 and GCC version 4.1.2 with Ubuntu..
