The following piece of code works correctly only if CCTBX_GCC4_WORKAROUND is 

  rt_mx rt_mx::new_denominators(int r_den, int t_den) const
    rt_mx result(*this);
    if (r_den) result.r_ = result.r_.new_denominator(r_den);
    if (r_den) {
      rot_mx r = result.r_.new_denominator(r_den);
      result.r_ = r;
    if (t_den) result.t_ = result.t_.new_denominator(t_den);
    return result;

A reproducer is available here:


To build:

gunzip -c gcc4_debug.tar.gz | tar xf -
cd gcc4_debug

Expected output:

g++ -fPIC -ftemplate-depth-120 -w -DBOOST_DISABLE_THREADS -DNDEBUG -O3 -ffast-
math -I. -c gcc4_debug.cpp
g++ -fPIC -ftemplate-depth-120 -w -DBOOST_DISABLE_THREADS -DNDEBUG -O3 -ffast-
math -I. -c cctbx.cpp -o cctbx_normal.o
g++ -o normal gcc4_debug.o cctbx_normal.o
g++ -fPIC -ftemplate-depth-120 -w -DBOOST_DISABLE_THREADS -DNDEBUG -O3 -ffast-
math -I. -DCCTBX_GCC4_WORKAROUND -c cctbx.cpp -o cctbx_hacked.o
g++ -o hacked gcc4_debug.o cctbx_hacked.o

This will only take a few seconds to build the commands "normal" and "hacked". 
The expected output is:





The output of ./normal is wrong, the output of ./hacked is correct. The only 
difference is the CCTBX_GCC4_WORKAROUND.

The same code works fine (without the workaround) with gcc 3.2.3 and many other 

I will try to attach the reproducer if possible. It still is 877kB in size, 
starting from 15+MB, mainly because of the Boost headers. I spent several hours 
stripping it down to this size. I hope you have tools to reduce the rest much
