Summary: complexobject.c optimization error on SGI (PR#144)

Details: Jitterbug-Id: 144
Submitted-By: robert.harrison@pnl.gov
Date: Fri, 3 Dec 1999 01:35:19 -0500 (EST)
Version: 1.5.2
OS: IRIX64 6.5

On an SGI (IRIX64 6.5, MIPSpro Compilers: Version 7.3.1m, -n32)
Python-1.5.2/Objects/complexobject.c does not compile correctly 
with optimization.  The problem shows up as a bus error in
PyComplex_ImagAsDouble when importing Numeric Python.  All works fine 
when this one file is compiled with -O0 (-O1 and higher fail).
I assume that this is probably just a compiler error.

Assigning to Fred, but we really need somebody with the specified OS to do platform specific testing.

Sent a message to the original submitter asking if this is still a problem, and indicated that we don't have access to any SGI IRIX systems on which to perform testing.

Set priority really low. SGI optimizer bugs are a common pain, but not worth losing sleep over.
Maybe just close it with "Wont Fix"?

Added a note to the README file explaining the optimization bug and how to build so that the complex object is compiled without optimization.  Closing this as "Won't Fix."
