Dear Srijan,

let me save the time of the many people that have already answered  
many times similar questions in the past.

This is a bug of the compiler, NOT of the code. A compiler is  
supposed to compile an even wrong code, or else to report that the  
code contains some errors. If it doesn't, it is the compiler that  
does not work. Please, note that the "Software Problem Report" is a  
service of the company (intel in this case) that distributes the  
compiler. So, the first action to undertake is to report to them.

1) Browse the archive of this mailing list where this kind of  
problems has been discussed several times.
2) Change the compiler and/or implement a workaround (if any have  
been suggested that would fit your particolar case) accordingly.

Cheers - Stefano
