That's not true; a debugger may change the value of x.
That's why Python has the following option:
-O : optimize generated bytecode slightly; also PYTHONOPTIMIZE=x
I regulary recompile programs with gcc -O0 -g to debug them. It is very difficult to debug (with gdb) a program compiled with gcc -O2: many variables are stored in registers, and gdb doesn't support that correctly.
Victor, you seem to be equating the gcc -O flag with the Python -O flag. They are described similarly, but can't be used the same way. In particular, there is no Python equivalent to gcc's -O0: there is no way to disable the Python peephole optimizer.
