gcc's optimizations interact in fairly complex ways. I haven't looked
at this particular case, but it is not surprising that gcc does not act
as you predict. If you are interested I would encourage you to look
into the problem. Using -fdump-tree-all and comparing dumps is often a
good way to find out what is happening.
