   Yeah, since you said everything works fine with gcc 4.6.1 & 4.6.2
while it fails with gcc 4.6.0 and the original bug ticket also mentioned
that the bug was originally detected with gcc 4.6.0 I'm perfectly
satisfied with calling this a 'compiler bug' and committing a patch
using a while loop instead of goto that we tested before, together with
a comment describing the bug.

   Already fixed on the trunk, so it will bubble up to some release
eventually... :-)

   Change committed as revision [80319].

   Thanks again for all the effort you put into this!
