>Description:
//////////bug.cc:
void access(const float&) {}
int test(float t)
{
  float v = 0.75f+t;
  int test1 = v < 1.0f ? 1 : 2;
  int test2 = v < 1.0f ? 1 : 2;
  access(v);
  return test1*10+test2;
}
int main(void) { return test(0.25f-1.0f/67108864.0f); }
//////////GNUmakefile
bug: bug.cc; g++3 -O1 -o bug bug.cc
>How-To-Repeat:
With the two specified files, use gmake to build.

With -O1, the values computed for test1 and test2
are different while the source code is identical.
>Fix:
Can use the -ffloat-store option, but that is a mighty
big hammer.
