Oh, I had run into this in the past in context of an
empty struct and thought that the bug fix was for that
case only?

 http://open-std.org/jtc1/sc22/wg21/docs/cwg_defects.html#253

Oh geez, I assumed that any_static_probe_ops was a POD with
function pointers, but now that I look, I see virtual
methods...

Anyhow.

And it seems like the compilers aligned with the new behavior.  So is it really a GDB bug?  In any case, I have no problem adding the explicit initialization to be friendly with older compilers.

Not sure anymore.  But in any case I have no problems with
the explicit initialization either.

Thanks,
