Great, thanks. Testing ongoing.

I'm seeing frequent Access Violations when running programs of any
complexity that have been compiled with "-B -O- -Oodfa,deadstore"...
but this seems to have been happening already in 3.2.0, so not a
regression. I don't see a bug for this yet, so I'll try to come up with
a minimal reproducible. We'll need to warn users about this if it can't
be fixed for 3.2.2.
