Linux 2.5.59 #5 Mon Jan 20 20:34:47 CET 2003 i686 GNU/Linux
The bug was first encountered with std::string. But the testcase only needs a non-POD object in the bad scope of a case statement.

End of search list. In function `int main(int)': jump to case label   enters scope of non-POD `s b'
Internal compiler error: Error reporting routines re-entered.
Please submit a full bug report,
with preprocessed source if appropriate.
See <URL:> for instructions.
Just compile this code snippet:

int l;
struct s { ~s() { l++; } };
int main(int a) {
  switch(a) {
  case 0: s b;
  case 1: s c = b;
  return 0;
Write legal code :-)
