Yeah, I may have been too fast here. I'll know what I need to test more
thoroughly in the future, besides booting my VMs with it.

In this case:
echo "a.b" | sed 's|\.|_|g'
should return a_b and not something cryptic.

Anyway, it seems the bug I reported in gcc 4.5 is not the only one that
is breaking stuff here. The fix for that one has not yet been backported
to 4.5 (it is in the 4.6 branch only). Once that is backported, we need
a new snapshot.
