at least with the current gcc-3.3 in unstable I could not reproduce
the miscompilation with Daniel Stone's current 4.3 sources and
optimization set to -O2. with the same compiler and the 4.2 sources in
unstable however the miscompilation is reproducible. CC to debian-x as
my response about the test went to Daniel only.

I checked this on i386-linux.
