gcc 3.3.1 support placement new w/ initializer?

Although I have seen examples of using placement new with an argument to the constructor as so:
class ClassType {
  ClassType( int ) { }

int main ( int argc, char ** argv )
  char memory[sizeof(ClassType)];
  new ((void *)memory) ClassType( 3 ); //<--- the problem
GCC 3.3.1 refuses to compile it, giving the message:
<internal>:9: error: too many arguments to function `void* operator new(unsigned int)'
Does GCC 3.3.1 just not support placement new with initializers? I've tried to google this, but failed miserably. Or if anyone with a modern M$ compiler can try simply compiling that statement, and tell me if it does in fact actually compile or not.

That's pretty cool, didn't know you could do that.

Thats only the begining with placement new you could create instances statically or using shared memory model, pool-allocation, for garabge collected heap etc, etc.
