Then, that is a bug.
When I oiginally implemented that for C++, the intended semantics
definitely was to have it default to 72 -- but C people wanted
something different for C front end.  If it is observed that g++ has
it set to zero, then we must set it back to 72.

Please not, 72 is completely unusable for C++.
