As soon as GCC6 becomes usefully available for Ubuntu, I'll likely go
after the problem if it persists.  At the current point of time,
particularly with my somewhat weird 32/64-bit setup, that would be a lot
of effort.

I do think that GCC6 is rather bleeding-edge right now and I doubt you'd
find it in RedHat (which uses Fedora as sort of a pretest platform) yet.
