I found that if there is another similar object in this file which is 
referenced externally, then the constructor of my_instance is also called, 
even if it is marked static, and has no references.

I have gcc 4.3.1 on SuSE 11.0
uname -a
Linux notebook #1 SMP 2008-10-21 16:30:26 +0200 i686 i686 
i386 GNU/Linux
