Well, actually I found some bug in the gcc (GCC bug #19333), 


and it turned out that it was due to an improper handling of constructions 
like these in special cases, because gcc allowed them before. I don't know 
whether it was allowed only by accident or intentionally, but then they 
decided to ban these constructions as they are not allowed in the C 
standard anyway.

If you take a closer look at the bugreport, you'll find out that it was 
discovered during a compilation of XviD. :-)
