c++/9872: temporary destructor not called?

Ok, standalone, no library dependent test code is here: I've basically 
stripped down the QT QString implementation.

- to eat up memory:
   g++ -c bug.cpp
   g++ bug.o -o bug
- works properly:
   g++ -fno-elide-constructors -c bug.cpp
   g++ bug.o -o bug

Find .cpp, .ii, .s attached: bug.without-felide.s is the one which eats up 
memory, the other one bug.with-felide.s is the properly working one.

If this is indeed a bug in gcc then if would explain why I have increasing 
swap usage after running KDE for weeks, even thoug no app. is running. In 
such cases I to restart KDE and swap usage disappeares. IF indeed it is a gcc 
bug and SuSE compiled kde using gcc3.2...
