I have a fix, which I've verified by hand-inspecting the assembly.  I'm a bit uncertain about whether to 
check in a test case, though.  The right test is either to put in a scan-assembler looking for the debug 
symbols or to run gdb and look for information about the variable in question.  However, it doesn't look 
like tests like that exist anywhere in our test suite.  It would be weird to invent a mechanism like that 
just for this one special case.
