Create a file named "funny.ii" with the following contents:
------------------snip here ----------
# 1 "funny.cpp"
struct A
  struct B { B(); };

static A::B b;
------------------snip here ----------
Make sure that there is no file named "funny.cpp"
and start the compiler with "g++ -c funny.ii".
Then you'll get the following ICE:

funny.cpp:6: Internal compiler error in append_random_chars, at tree.c:4484
Please submit a full bug report, [etc.]

If there exists a file "funny.cpp" (even if it's empty)
the file compiles fine.

This bug was distilled from the file repmap.ii in PR 4286.
In repmap.ii we have A == ios_base and B == Init.
Because of this bug the original testcase in PR4286
(repmap.ii) still produces an ICE (using g++ -c repmap.ii),
although one bug (the one in the reduced test case) was
fixed and the PR was closed.
g++ -c funny.ii
