Hmm, I'm not very happy with it. Remember this is a regression from gcc-2.95
and was reported before 3.0 was released. IF we release 3.0.1 without KDE2
being fixed, I would suggest that fixing that bug is a release criteria for
gcc-3.0.2 (and gcc-3.0.2 should be released in about the same timeframe as
gcc-3.0.1 then, 2-3 month).
Anyway, many thanks to Stefan producing these small testcases and to Nathan
for working so hard on fixing them.
