Do you have any more details available somewhere I can see them? Maybe
in Fedora's bugzilla or on the devel@ list?

As already pointed out, turning on individual optimizations without -O
has no effect.

https://gcc.gnu.org/bugs/ advises "Before reporting that GCC compiles
your code incorrectly, compile it with gcc -Wall -Wextra and see
whether this shows anything wrong with your code. Similarly, if
compiling with -fno-strict-aliasing -fwrapv
-fno-aggressive-loop-optimizations makes a difference, your code
probably is not correct."

Although -fno-strict-aliasing is unlikely to make any difference
because strict aliasing is only enabled at -O2 and above.

You can also try -fsanitize=undefined to detect undefined behaviour at runtime.
