Bug 12389 has the potential to cause lots of ICEs if turned on by
default, at least for ... a certain style of code.  (I don't
particularly like nested functions in C, but a lot of packages,
including glibc, seem fairly fond of them.)

(unit-at-a-time causes glibc to lose in other ways, too, on certain
platforms at least, but that's not unit-at-a-time's fault.  See
http://sources.redhat.com/ml/libc-alpha/2003-10/msg00013.html for
amusement.)
