optimize option, template and purify


I don't have enough time now, so I can't create code snippet to
demonstrate this problem. (I will, when I have enough time.) So this
time, I'd like to report this to egcs people.

I don't know whether purify (the version I'm using is 4.1, supports
Solaris 2.6, and still in beta I believe) is bad or not yet. 
   * * *

I've been using egcs compiler using STL template. I'm testing my code
using purify also.

I've been experiencing following problem:

[ current platform: sparc-sun-solaris2.6
  compiler: via CVS  on  98/03/11 15:33 JST.
  detailed repots are posted on <> ]

1. If I turned off optimize option (via -O0 or without -O) purify yelling
   like following or simliar.

	------------------------------ cut cut
UMR: Uninitialized memory read (2 times):

	------------------------------ cut cut

You can see this error is very weired.

One note: in some cases where I can remove 'inline' keyword from
template, I could avoid problem. I did this on 9802* snapshot, as I

2. I haven't realized this, but if I turn on optimize option (at least -O)
   all of above template related error disappered :-<

So, is always best to turn on -O?

Someone know this kind of problem?
