Default Bug#673749: g++-4.7: gcc47 generates buggy code with optimisation flags

Package: g++-4.7
Version: 4.7.0-8
Severity: normal
Tags: upstream

Dear Maintainer,

* What led up to the situation?
I ported feel++ to gcc47 and found out that it generates buggy code(generating
segfault) in optimisation mode.
Here are the steps to reproduce it
- install feel++-apps
- execute feel_doc_myfunctionspace (compiled using CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Release)
- it generates a segfault

what happens is that a data structure containing only a double data member seem
to be optimized away and became dangling reference (invalid read using
The code crashes at line 220 of doc/manual/tutorial/myfunctionspace.cpp when
evaluating the expression template data structure g defined on line 215.

- in gcc47 with CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE=Debug, it works without problems
- with gcc45, gcc46, clang31 on Linux and OSX there are no problems at all
in RelWithDebInfo and Release mode (CMAKE_BUILD_TYPE)

Hence I believe that this is a bug in gcc47 code generation/optimisation.
