The below testcase is miscompiled, and this affects openoffice.
This is the case since september last year (i.e. in 3.3 and HEAD).
---------------- snip -----------------
struct BOOL {
    int nVal:1, bSet:1;
    BOOL (int i) : nVal(i!=0), bSet(1) {}
struct Fill {
    void *d;
    Fill() : d(0) {}
    Fill( const Fill& ) {}
struct SvMetaSlot {
    Fill aGroupId;
    BOOL a1; BOOL a2; BOOL a3; BOOL a4; BOOL a5; BOOL a6; BOOL a7;
    BOOL a8;
    SvMetaSlot() :
      a1(0), a2(0), a3(0), a4(0), a5(0), a6(0), a7(0),
      a8(1) {}
    SvMetaSlot* MakeClone() const;

SvMetaSlot* SvMetaSlot::MakeClone() const { return new SvMetaSlot( *this ); }

extern "C" void abort(void);
int main()
  SvMetaSlot s; SvMetaSlot s2(s);
  if (s.a8.bSet != s2.a8.bSet)
    abort ();
  return 0;
-------------- snap -------------
Compile it with -O1 (or -O2), and see it abort.  When
-DOUTLINE_CCTOR is given, the implicit cctor of SvMetaSlot
is created in an out-of-line copy, so it can be analyzed easier.
If it's not given, the cctor in inlined into the MakeClone()
method, but the outcome is the same.  Note how the BOOL class
uses just bitfield members.
What happens is, that all the BOOL members of SvMetaSlot are
not copied in the synthetic copy ctor.  There is no RTL
generated for copying those members, for instance the
assembler output for the out-of-line copy on i686 is:

SvMetaSlot::SvMetaSlot[in-charge](SvMetaSlot const&):
        pushl   %ebp
        movl    %esp, %ebp
        popl    %ebp

The miscompile happens with cvs -D"2002-09-30 19:00", but not
with -D"2002-09-30 18:21", and the only patch during that period
is Marks:
+2002-09-30  Mark Mitchell  <>
+       * class.c (walk_subobject_offsets): Correct the calculation of
+       offsets for virtual bases.  Correct the counting of array
+       elements.
+       (layout_nonempty_base_or_field): Simplify.  Correct the
+       calculation of offsets to be propagated through the binfo
+       hierarchy.
+       (build_base_field): Avoid creating a FIELD_DECL for empty bases.
+ ....
Compile the above testcase with g++ (no matter what -O option),
on i686-linux (x86-64 breaks too), run it.  It will abort.
