That would be my guess too.

Well, I did a bit more digging, 'cause it's really annoying me... ...
and because I have lost a bit of faith in gcc 4.6.0.

I have tried compiling with gcc 4.6.1 and gcc 4.6.2. The target
system is a production system, so for various reasons, I cannot yet
use gcc 4.7 series.
Anyway, to cut to the chase, both gcc 4.6.1 and gcc 4.6.2 successfully
compile the small test case described earlier in this thread :-) So
gcc 4.6.0 is definitely broken for the loop/while/goto construct when
using -Os, -O2 or -O3.
I have now thrown Boost 1.51 at gcc 4.6.2 and will report the results shortly.
