Description Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-06-07 18:57:09 EDT
The soon-to-be-attached program causes gcc to segfault on my system.

"rpm -q gcc" says "gcc-4.1.0-3".

Comment 2 Søren Sandmann Pedersen 2006-06-07 19:05:14 EDT
I do realize that nesting loops more 32000 levels deep is unusual, but believe
it or not, I didn't actually write this program deliberately to crash the compiler.

I'm not sure if it's worth worrying about it at all.
