One version where you can see this is gcc-4.3.0. (Yes, I saw it
too, just didn't get around to do the legwork, so thanks Jan.)
The warning is removed from later gcc-versions, IIRC because it
was deemed incorrect, or removed as undesirable from -W, -Wall
or something like that. That of course is not the same as (not)
actively avoiding the warning for compatibility reasons.
