The class whose construction fails is defined in my test case
as follows:

struct double_zero {
   const double epsilon;

   double_zero(const double& epsilon_arg=1e-8) : epsilon(epsilon_arg) { }

One would expect from a copy constructor, especially from the implicit
one, that it would copy the value of the instance variable
"epsilon". I don't think this could fall under the definition of a side effect.

Alternatively, if optimization according to the clause [12.8]/15 comes
into effect here, as you mean, then it is the constructor
double_zero(const double&) that is being forgotten. At any rate, the
"epsilon" variable contains garbage after the construction, as shows up
in the debugging output.

Encouraged by such a quick response, I hope for a similarly quick fix :-)

With best regards,
