State-Changed-From-To: open->analyzed
State-Changed-Why: Confirmed.  The code is illegal, dynamic_cast should be used instead of static_cast.

 before the ICE g++ emits an error message, so that we'll see a
 "confused by earlier errors, bailing out" message instead in the release
 version (as in gcc 3.1 for example).
 However, gcc 3.0.x and gcc 2.95.x could handle this situation without
 such a message. So this is a slight regression.
