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.
