Usually the person who added the test case is the person who fixed the
bug. Find out who added the test case by looking in testsuite/ChangeLog
or by using "cvs log" on the file. Then look for changes in the sources
by the same person on the same date by looking at the appropriate
ChangeLog files. You can also search for the patch in the archives for
gcc-patches, which will usually have an explanation of the patch.
