In some cases, the creation of a temporary object causes a compiler crash:

Embarcadero C++ 6.21 for Win32 [...]
Internal backend error C1798 compiling c.cpp(12)
*** 1 errors in Compile ***

The temporary object should have been value-initialized, as it was created by doing T().

I encountered the crash when I tried to compile a test which verifies the implementation of value-initialization for an large number of types. The test is to be included with Boost version 1.44.0, but a preliminary version is already at

Attached code:

class user_defined_destructor_holder {
  int i;
  ~user_defined_destructor_holder() {}

int main() {
  return user_defined_destructor_holder().i;
Steps to Reproduce:
bcc32 -c qc83851

For your information:

Some results of a test that has such a temporary object, user_defined_destructor_holder(), are now at the Boost regression web site:

Apparently, the old codegear/borland-cb2009 does not have a compile error, while the new codegear/borland-cb2010 has.

According to the Boost website it says:
Fatal F1004 ..\libs\config\test\boost_no_com_value_init.ipp 565: Internal compiler error at 0x451799 with base 0x400000 in function check_value_initialization_of_temporaries()
Fatal F1004 ..\libs\config\test\boost_no_com_value_init.ipp 565: Internal compiler error  in function check_value_initialization_of_temporaries()

The function check_value_initialization_of_temporaries() is in
