Thanks much for this detailed report. I have fixed things up according
to your notes; I am running some regression tests now, but will post an
updated copy to the web site so that others using this compiler version
won't encounter the same problems. (If you happen to have time to
double-check my work after I post the update, please let me know the
results (off-list).)

It's not infinite (redirect stdout to /dev/null to see), just output
placed (annoyingly) in a very long loop.

I haven't made any changes here (to keep things relatively "stable"
during the review period), but yes, noted.
