Didn't mean to send this one yet, was saving it as a draft until
investigated further, must've clicked send by mistake. Ignore please.

Looks like it.

Hmm, possibly. I'll have to investigate more, as I'm not at that machine ATM.

Good to know.

I'll probably do something along those lines soon. I've been looking
into various GCC CFLAGS/optimizations and have been testing the source
code in various configurations. I'll try to get a wiki going of
compiler bugs/WONTFIX's, etc. But first, I've got to learn more about
what CFLAGS/optimizations/etc. conflict with each other.
