The scenario is
terminal a, b, c, r;
auto tmp = a*b*c;
r = tmp + tmp;
Assuming everything is held by reference, when used in r, tmp will refer
to a dangling reference (the a*b node).
If everything is inlined, the problem may be avoided because it doesn't
require things to be present on the stack.
Of course, it's quite hacky.
