I suppose Florian already knows that, he just meant it's basically the
same programming/coding error. And also guess he meant "where do we
stop"? ;-)
Maybe just adding the option to disable the const optimization and
letting the programmer figure out whether it fixes or not a bug is a
good enough addition?
