Oh, I already fixed it:


If you would like to figure out a better reason *why* this fixes it, I'd
be grateful :) . Basically, if either of the statements in the if ()
block were there, it ICE'd and if both were commented out, it was fine.
Adding a "std::cerr << fileNum << std::endl;" also fixed the ICE, so I
figured the optimizer is getting things screwed up somewhere.

:INTERNAL means that it'd be off if it were't requested by some other
reader. It only occurs in Release mode. Check the output of configure to
see if it is already enabled and what is dragging it in.
