Description Robert Hancock 2006-12-04 17:03:24 EST
Description of problem:

On compiling several files from the TAO open-source CORBA software (such as
TAO/tao/ObjectKey_Table.cpp), the compiler runs forever when compiling with both
optimization and debug info enabled. With either optimization or debug info
disabled the compile completes normally.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

1. Compile attached preprocessed test case with:

g++ -O3 -g -c -o ObjectKey_Table.o ObjectKey_Table.cpp

2. Also try with just -O3 and just -g
Actual results:

Compiler runs forever and never finishes

Expected results:

Compile eventually completes

Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2006-12-05 10:31:03 EST
This is endless loop in vt_find_locations, very likely duplicate of #216695.
As a workaround, compile with -O3 -g -fno-var-tracking.
