            Bug ID: 33487
           Summary: dynamic_cast to ambiguous derived class produces the
                    wrong answer
           Product: libc++abi
           Version: unspecified

This is similar to bug 33439, but in that case we're casting between unrelated
types where the most derived type contains multiple (ambiguous) subobjects of
the destination type. In *this* case we're casting between related types — from
a base subobject to a derived type — where the source object is a subobject of
more than one object of the destination type. In both cases the symptom is
similar: dynamic_cast returns a pointer to the first such ambiguous subobject,
when it should be returning NULL.

#include <stdio.h>

struct Class1 { virtual ~Class1() {} };
struct Shared : public virtual Class1 {};
struct Class6 : public virtual Shared {};
struct Left : public Class6 {};
struct Right : public Class6 {};
struct Main : public Left, public Right {};

int main()
    Main m;
    Class1 *c1 = &m;
    Class6 *c6 = dynamic_cast<Class6*>(c1);
    printf("%p, should be nullptr\n", c6);
