Clang will automatically insert a check that receivers are nil for structure 
returns and substitute a zero-initialised structure instead of doing the 
message send in these cases.  It's done this for about a year, so the simplest 
fix is just to use clang to compile.

The static analyser also warns if you do this, but you only need to bother 
fixing it in code that you intend to compile with gcc.
