It'd certainly be an interesting exercise to re-run the analysis and see whether there's been regression in this area in the intervening time period.

From 2008 so mostly not relevant if using up to date compilers

The paper says that 2 of the 3 bugs they reported were quickly fixed, but that the remaining one (in GCC) was not fixed at the time of writing.

Wonder if it's since been fixed.

Do we know if it's not still relevant? Being out of date only means it might not still be relevant...
