It may indicate a memory-related bug, simply because those are
some of the most common hard-to-find bugs in practice.  It is
probably not a memory leak, because a memory leak just means that
memory is wasted.

Strangely, I couldn't reproduce this bug on Solaris 8 using any
of GCC 3.3, 4.0, or the Sun C compiler.  (Actually the Sun
compiler gives some warnings and errors we should fix, but
they're not related to this problem.)

What version of GCC are you using?
