I was under the impression that if I reported the bug
to gnats (which I did) and got the bug acknowledged by
some guy responsible for handling my gnats submit
(which it was) and if that guy even reported what the
bug was, and implicitly how it should be fixed (which
he did), then the bugfix would at sometime be in a
future release of gcc. And now that this bug wasn't in
2.95.3, I was under the impression that if a fix was
available, it would be in 3.0.1 .

It is a severe bug IMO, and I suspect an easy fix,
even if I haven't checked the source code of
in_avail(), because this is sort of a boundary case
(there are zero elements in the buffer), and could be
dealt with seperately, if not in any other way.
