Description Göran Uddeborg 2001-01-06 11:36:33 EST
Calling g++ like this

g++ -c -O3 -o ball.o ball.cc

on the enclosed input file causes g++ to dump core.  This is with with the
updated gcc-c++-2.96-69 version of the compiler.  I have tried to reduce
the example further, but it the problem disappears for most things I remove
now.  Even if I do things like removing the second #include of a file which
has already been included.

(For correct credits: the original source came from the tunnel game
http://www.eng.um.edu.mt/~tbspit/tunnel version 20000913.)

Cannot reproduce this (perhaps you have some headers different to
what I have installed). Can you perhaps run
g++ -c -O3 -o ball.o ball.cc -save-temps -v
then try if
g++ -c -O3 -o ball.o ball.ii
reproduces it as well and attach here ball.ii if yes?
Comment 3 Göran Uddeborg 2001-01-07 15:45:21 EST
I upbraded glibc-2.2 from release 5 to 9 to check if that was the relevant
difference, but it doesn't seem to be.  I still get the dump. Is there any other
package involved which I should check?  Gcc doesn't seem to depend on much else.

Anyway, I include ball.ii as requested.  I also enclose a script log showing the
output when I ran the commands. As you can see, the bug is still there.

Fixed in CVS g++ today (well, it did not segfault on it but the bug was still
there), plus the patch will appear in gcc-c++-2.96-71
