I created x.cpp:
x.bar = 1;
x.bar = x.bar;
Then I compiled this and start gdb:
# g++ -g x.cpp
# gdb a.out

I use Debian Squeeze GNU/Linux, linux kernel 2.6.32-5, amd64, gcc and g++ 4:4.4.4-2 from my repository
This bug was when I used gdb 7.0.1-2+b1 from my repository and when I used gdb 184.108.40.20601009 from ftp://sourceware.org/pub/gdb/snapshots/, too.
I'm Russian. So please speak with me in Russian or simple English.
This is a g++ bug. Closing as dup of the gdb tracker.
