not entirely exactly, but very similar.

H.J.Lu's toolchain performs slightly better than gcc-2.95, and worse than
gcc-3.0 (just tried it here).  One thing that makes this case "better" is
to increase the optimization level from -O0 to -O2.  It still doesn't fix
it, however, so this is a gcc-3.0 bug, for generating asm that the assembler
can't handle.  Follow the steps for reporting a gcc bug, either to the
Debian bts or gcc upstream.
