Ok, this sheds some light on it.

Given that the "memory" clobber in the original example had no effect, I 
am assuming that this is indeed a bug.  Am I correct?  The problem there 
is that the load from G has been lost during translation to MI, so I'm 
assuming that this is something that the clobber should have prevented.

I have a local patch for it that I can submit here for review.
