Sounds fine to me, we have two production C/C++ compilers in the
repositories so there's no need to be blocked by bugs in one.

Bisecting gcc and identifying the commit causing the regression would
be easier, but also a *huge* time waster :). Comparing the assembly
doesn't sound worth doing, if you can't get a nice stack trace to
narrow down the problem code.
