The bug is not reproducible, so it is likely a hardware or OS problem.
- the bug is quite reproducible, why does gcc say otherwise?
This is due to a patch that Red Hat has added to the FSF gcc sources.
When a Red Hat gcc release gets an ICE, it tries re-executing the
command, to see if it fails again. If it doesn't, then that usually
indicates a hardware problem. In this case, it may mean a bug in the
Red Hat patch, which is something you would have to report to Red Hat.
We don't support Red Hat gcc releases here, only FSF ones.
As for the underlying bug, the ICE, I can reproduce this with FSF
gcc-3.4.x sources. It would be OK to report that bug into the FSF gcc
