I have seen similar problem of warning in betwen units because one was compiled
with -fsigned-char and other with -funsigned-char (in Firefox). I think compiler is
valid to warn here about ODR violation since those flags are ABI breaking flags.
It is also possible it is compare bug in the new ODR checking code - but I do not
really see how it could get confused in such a rather simple structure.

Yep, I am curious too. I just got my trees updated after vacation so hopefully
I will get there soon (for sure libreoffice will trigger few GCC bugs first)
