As mentioned yesterday, I tested it under Win32 with the 2.6.4 compiler
and it worked according to specification. It apparently works well for
Jonas too on his Mac OS X machine (according to his note added to the bug

We clearly need to find out more information about the differences leading
to the incorrect behaviour. That's why I asked the bug reporter to provide
information about his platform (one difference which I can see that Graeme
uses the x86_64 version - not that it should make any difference, but all
possibilities need to be analyzed), check if -n changes anything and test
if it works the same also with the simplest source files.
