The biggest unreported regression in in the S000005 tests:

(times are ns per iteration)
==== Fill a buffer using different levels of abstraction
           g++295   g++401   g++410_0723
S000005a 3870.00 20840.00* 21240.00*
S000005b 3878.00 21120.00* 21140.00*
S000005c 3782.00  3894.00* 21320.00*
S000005d 3862.00 21360.00* 21220.00*
S000005e 3916.00  3834.00  19780.00*
S000005f 3818.00  3936.00* 21160.00*
S000005g 3940.00 20280.00* 20640.00*
S000005h 3868.00 21040.00* 21540.00*
S000005i 3928.00 20060.00* 21480.00*
S000005j 3844.00 21840.00* 21140.00*
S000005k 3912.00  3750.00  3964.00*
S000005l 3946.00 21360.00* 3912.00
S000005m 4746.00  3958.00  3904.00

Most of these are slow in both gcc-4.0.1 and gcc-4.1.
S000005e was fine in gcc-4.0.1,
but is suddenly slower in gcc-4.1.

Anthony, can you try submitting a reduced test case for
S000005e?

Thanks,
Dan
