	I have seen a problem similar to this using GCC v3.x. I maintain a
different program that a user tried to compile with 3.x (haven't used it
yet myself) and it choked on a piece of code like this:

printf ("Hey, is this thing on?" \
#ifdef SOME_VAR

The statement compiled just fine with non-3.x versions of GCC, and I
really don't know what changed. Maybe it's a bug, maybe it's a correct
ANSI spec that got repaired, I don't know.
