Any "unexpected" behaviour of the compiler can be seen as a bug, so
yes, if we understand what the problem is, it should be solved. Or at
least we could define workarounds to avoid stretching the compiler's
ability too much.

I believed that most problems with efficiency were already solved in
3.06, but you might have found a new one. Please write a bug report.

By the way several infinite loops were solved since 3.06, but this
doesn't seem to be your problem.
