           Summary: False -Wunreachable-code warning in
                    switch(typedefEnum) for default:
           Product: clang
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P
         Component: -New Bugs
        AssignedTo: unassignedclangbugs at nondot.org

There is a false -Wunreachable-code warning when a switch() statement has a
`typedef enum` as its argument and all of the declared `enum` types have a
`case ...:` statement for them.

In this case, clang will give an unreachable warning if the `switch() { }`
statement contains a `default:`, which clang will incorrectly warn that the
`default:` case is not reachable.

This is on a Mac OS X 10.7 system running clang from Xcode 4.2 Build 4D75.
