Demonstrates bad code generation with -O3

I was writing some code to demonstrate custom allocators with fancy pointers.

Jonathan Wakely had a quick look and narrowed it down to "-O2
-ftree-partial-pre"; with just "-O2" the code works.

I don't have any insights in the problem, so I'm just attaching the full code.
You can tell that it's broken by passing the program through valgrind, or
simply by noting that it prints all container elements as zero, rather than
their actual values.

(Incidentally, I believe there's a similar problem in Clang:
