The bug is already fixed for the CW9 and all other compilers weren't
affected anyway, so I thought it's pointless to add

#if defined(__MWERKS__) && __MWERKS__ < 0x3200

to protect the new code. Also, you haven't done that for the fix for the
Intel-compiler yourself, so why do you mention it now?

And AFAICS if we would really be serious about the regression testing
for compiler vendors, this needs to be pulled to the config-system
anyway. Remember who said: "Dependencies. I hate dependencies." :)
