Sorry about that.  I didn't imagine the problem was so rare.  My bad.

Try this: build the latest sharutils 4.13.4 with CFLAGS='-g3 -O2',
then do this:

  $ cd src && gdb ./shar
  (gdb) break generate_full_ TAB

(There is a static function named generate_full_header in shar.c.)

As mentioned before, the problem happened to me with GCC 4.7.2 on
MinGW.  As expected, GDB reports (in "info source") that the debug
info is DWARF 2 with preprocessor macro info.

Let me know if you need more info from GDB, I have the build directory
handy with the object and executable files that trigger this problem.
