Keep in mind that in the greater scheme of things, Free42 is a pretty simple piece of software, where bugs tend to be noticed quickly. I shudder to think what obscure optimizer bugs could do in really complex information systems!

Question is, how do you know the optimizer is at fault? It could be at fault, but more often than not it is invalid assumptions of the programmer that is at fault. (No accusations intended here. I'm just stating the general case.)

In my experience, when code malfunctions after having been optimized, and works after not having been optimized, the optimizer is at fault 100% of the time. Of course this could be just me being an outlier, but if you go and claim

it would be nice if you would provide something, anything, to lend some weight to that claim.
