Guys, this is getting to be a peeing contest. Can anyone confirm that the
gcc maintainers are aware of this, and are they able to make a statement as
to which compilers need their optimisation code sorted?

I mean, if we did this kind of gross dissection of every bug, we'd be
deleting messages all day and not doing any work. Full-disclosure doesn't
mean full-boredom!

To be specific:

1. Feel free to report a bug
2. Wait for a fix or provide one yourself.
3. Go back to 1 if 2 doesn't fix it.

Thank you.
