No. The fact that your code works without optimizations and not with 
either means that there's a bug in the optimizer, or that there's a bug 
in your code which happens to be triggered (more reliably) by an 

E.g., if you don't initialise a variable somewhere, maybe it's value 
without optimizations (on the stack) happens to be 0 initially, but when 
it's moved to a register (with optimisations) it has another value.
