Because the two cases are different. In the Intel case, the compiler
deliberately allows certain (not really uncommon) broken code in <headers>,
presumably in order to compile some broken system header. In the Metrowerks
case our tests exposed a compiler bug that wasn't deliberately coded in. Had
our headers been "fixed" beforehand, the compiler bug wouldn't have been
Thanks for listening.
