Why? As far as I understand all those cases are try/catch/finally that
the compiler constructs and wraps around user code. On the other hand,
I can try to minimize the amount of changes to those required to fix
only the bug reported, if that would make easier to approve the patch.

If the user writes a try/catch he should expect to get warnings for
things there. However, for anything generated by the compiler we
should set no_warning (and if possible DEL_ARTIFICIAL). This is
clearly not done in large parts of the compiler. And the resulting
warnings are very confusing.
