I am sorry Billy but the new code is much harder to understand than the
original, so I am not inclined to change it based on a compiler bug, for
which SCO is so famous.

If you wish to submit a patch that removes optimization from the
Makefile for the file or entire directory under SCO, I will consider it.
And I would document the change so we can remove it later.
