Package: gcc-4.0
Version: 4.0.2-5
Severity: important

gcc gives corrupted(?) error messages:

% cat x.c

void main()
    x = 1;

% gcc x.c
x.c: In function \uffff:
x.c:4: error: \uffff undeclared (first use in this function)
x.c:4: error: (Each undeclared identifier is reported only once
x.c:4: error: for each function it appears in.)
x.c:3: warning: return type of \uffff is not \uffff

The \uffff didn't cut and paste very well on my terminal it is just a
funny box as if it was a binary or unprintable character.

I will also note that I grabbed gcc-4.1 from experimental and had the
exact same issue.
