I spent almost a day on it, and my intuition is that gcc gets confused by the deep hierarchy and the static cast from the top level expression to, e.g., DenseBase, and back to expression via derived(). But that's only an intuition. > > If yes, do you want us to go forward and just release beta1 with a > "caveat", "exposes what seems to be a bug in gcc 4.3" ? yes, and the solution is to compile with -O2 -fno-strict-aliasing.... gael > > Benoit > > > > 2010/7/3 Benoit Jacob <jacob.benoit.1@xxxxxxxxx>: >> Gael: could you add your 1st example as a unit test?
