If simply inverting the if test and swapping the if/else blocks solves
some problem, that sounds like a compiler bug that we need to track down

Are you sure the change to initialize i wasn't all that was required to
solve the problem though? Mike has applied a patch for this that'll be
applied to 3.5-rcX and hence trickle into 3.6.
