Looking at the code, other place looks dubious:

  if (GET_CODE (PATTERN (insn)) == SET)
      rtx pat = PATTERN (insn);
      /* Check for memory stores to aliased objects.  */
      if (GET_CODE (SET_DEST (pat)) == MEM && !expr_equiv_p (SET_DEST (pat), x))
	/* pretend its a load and check for aliasing.  */
	if (find_loads (SET_DEST (pat), x))
	  return 1;
      return find_loads (SET_SRC (pat), x);
    return find_loads (PATTERN (insn), x);

This code handles the real stores to an aliased objects by returning 1,
but in case the instruction is not plain set, but it is an parallel containing
set, it does not - it just calls find_loads, that hapilly ignores SET_DEST
of the instructions.

One of oddities of i386 backend is the heavy use of PARALLELs, so this looks
like probably bug in this area. Usually stores are just plain move
instructions, that does not have the parallel, but even before GCSE there can
be exceptions IMO.

Whole gcse is somewhat PARALLEL unhappy. Once I will have more time, I will
try to do pass over that and figure out what else needs to be changed.

Hope this helps,
