It's a very simple test program:

#include <ace/Log_Msg.h>

int ACE_TMAIN( int argc, ACE_TCHAR **argv )
        ACE_DEBUG(( LM_DEBUG, ACE_TEXT("%D\n") ));
        return 0;

Gcc optimized out some code like
*fp++ = *format_string ++;

When I gdb to that line and "print fp", gdb reported that fp is optized out...

If I compile ACE library with -O2, everything become OK.

I will check if this will happen in other platform when I have time.
