For casts:

+void GRExprEngine::VisitCast(Expr* CastE, Expr* Ex, NodeTy* Pred,  
NodeSet& Dst,
+                             bool asLValue) {

    NodeSet S1;
    QualType T = CastE->getType();

-  if (T->isReferenceType())
-    VisitLVal(Ex, Pred, S1);
+  if (asLValue || T->isReferenceType())
+    VisitLValue(Ex, Pred, S1);
      Visit(Ex, Pred, S1);

Is there a case where a cast should evaluate to an lvalue?  I don't  
see VisitCast called with "asLValue" being true.
