Yes, I was aware of that, and it does make sense from a *technical* standpoint,
but I reported the bug anyway because this is a potential landmine waiting to
go off. You'll probably disagree, but for me changing the optimization level
should *not* subtly change the behavior of the code without even a warning!

If doing this is incorrect then the compiler should at least generate a warning
instead of silently generating wrong code. The compiler knows that the template
was defined in a header file, and it knows that the specialization was defined
in a .cpp file, so it could tell the user that "hey, that probably won't work
as you think it should; if you know what you're doing then feel free to silence
this warning".
