This is in an area of Emacs code that is sensitive to
minor details in how the C compiler works, and it's
quite possible that the bug is in Emacs, not in GCC.
Certainly I've seen similar tracebacks which came
from Emacs bugs.
If you're bisecting, you might want to look at Emacs
trunk bzr 107789, which I committed three days ago, and
which affects this part of the code. I don't offhand
see why it would cause the problem (though perhaps
it might *fix* the problem :-).
