But only in release mode. In a debug build, these pass. This strongly
suggests a change "somewhere" that accidentally relies on an uninitialized
value. Under the release build, I get oodles of bogus warnings related to
local name 'x' in 'f1' shadows use of 'x' as global in nested
so best guess is it's Jeremy's recent future-flag fiddling patches.
