I applied this change as a temporary workaround now (plus added it to 
our testsuite, so that the issue doesn't get forgotten.

That is more or less a regression test to avoid faulty behaviour of 
the newly produced compiler, plus it ensures we always get the same 
RTL and compiler state regardless of the starting compiler and RTL 

Thanks for your comments/hints!
