I consider this one to be a useful one--it's saved me on a couple of
occasions when making changes to someone else's code.

I really think it's a bug in gcc (see my other message or look at the
code in question to see that this is a case that gcc should be able to
catch properly).  It could be in the m68k md code, but I'm not sure how.
