I've been silent on the issue, but that doesn't mean I'm not working on it :)
I still haven't been able to find out what's wrong, but there's a
potential clue. My changes break one ANSI test, apparently because I
do a copy-tree I shouldn't do. (without the copy-tree the compiler
crashed, so I need to pinpoint exactly what and when to copy). That
may be unrelated with Alan's bug, but nevertheless I'll try to fix it.
I have the feeling, not backed out by actual evidence, that Alan's bug
is related only to the runtime compiler, which somewhat suggests that
that copy-tree might have something to do with it as well.
So, stay tuned. And in case I don't solve it in time for the release,
no problem - it's easy to disable the optimization without reverting
