  I have now!  I was aware that they've been working on it since the
initial release and that they've fixed the bugs that I guess were what gave
it such a bad reputation in the first place, but as Tony has discovered,
they haven't all been fixed yet, and that one really is a pretty fatal
flaw for anyone who needs to write metal-bashing code.

  From bero's page:

    "gcc 2.96 generates better, more optimized code. "

Heh.  Not for volatile variables, it doesn't!
