That's my greatest worry, it will almost always be someone else's problem.

When the problems extend right up to the kernel, it is a worry; if the
programming practices that give these results are normal and desired
though, the compiler needs to be *fixed* .... or a simpler fix might be
just to recompile without letting the errant behaviour occur, but alas,
from this thread (as you would expect), it isn't that simple. :(
