[Bug c/24968] New: wrong "will never be executed" warning


The following source will report

C:\Dev-Cpp\Projects\test-stlport\main_17.cpp In function `void test_17()': 
12 C:\Dev-Cpp\Projects\test-stlport\main_17.cpp [Warning] will never be
executed
12 C:\Dev-Cpp\Projects\test-stlport\main_17.cpp [Warning] will never be
executed

when using "-Wunreachable-code"

I reduced this from a way bigger source file with STL and even more if - else
involved and this was the only two warnings from the beginning (whole file) to
the end (this sample). Happens with C and C++.

void test_17()
{
        int pos = 1; 
        while(1) {
                if ( pos )
                {
                        if ( pos == 2 ) /* */
                        {
                        }
                        else
                        {
                                break;
                        }
                }
                else
                {
                        break;
                }
        }
}
