Mumble mumble mumble.  Never got around to filing it, figured XFree86
wasn't such obscure code that that the GCC developers would refuse to
touch it with a ten foot pole, reckoned they might happen upon the
problem independently and fix it with chagrin, conjectured that XFree86
might be used as a regression test for GCC[1].

In sum, anger, laziness, and wishful thinking.

[1] Now, now.  When I say "regression test for GCC," I'm not *trying* to
    make you laugh.
