Well, if an explicit -Wno-format doesn't work, that's a clear compiler 
bug.  But we want to move to disabling warnings within C files using 
DIAG_* macros anyway, instead of command-line options, so if that works 
where the command-line options don't then that's also a sufficient fix.  
(And if the warnings can be fixed by changing the test - if they're 
nothing to do with what it's intended to test - then such test changes 
make sense to replace -Wno- options, as in my patch 
<> for the 
present case.)
