having done just a little compiler writing in my day, I recall from my
textbooks that the prime directive of the optimization stage is not to
effect the symantec meaning of the program ... I believe floating point
operations would fall into that category -- what if those were financial
calculations? or calculations of the optimal curvature of the wing of the
plane your gonna ride someday?
I think that may indicate an error of some kind (in one of the compiler, a
bug in his cpu, a bug in vorbis, etc)
just my oponion ....
