This is so wrong as to be beyond belief.
With bugs and computers, it is hard to find something beyond belief.
It certainly was a relatively straightforward bug to introduce, and it
probably wasn't all that hard to fix. Certainly the existence of this

is an excellent compiler. And the price is very hard to beat.
