Muse0.9.*, Muse1.0pre, both do a lot of compiles with -O3 and there has been
no internal error with recent g++ et al. However, these builds have been
segfaulting consistantly. Whether this relates to this bug I do not know. (To
go through all their makefiles and change all of this is a bit too much and
the configure optimization options do not effect this, it seems.)
I do not recall what I was building when I go that error message but the -O3
compilations in Muse do not produce the error.
-O2 seems to work fine in builds where this is specified.
