 These aren't rhetorical questions; I have no idea.  I'm interested in
 what actual experience is like here.  My guess would be that changes to
 the build machinery are quite likely to break various languages, but
 that changes to (say) the register allocator are unlikely to work
 reliably in C/C++, but not in Fortran/Java.  And, that, in fact, Ada is
 the language other than C/C++ most likely to show up problems.

Examples of where I have had issues:

This is useful data. It would seem to suggest that C/C++ testing would have caught most of your problems, with the exception of the complex-number testing, where you found Fortran testing to be most effective.
