These warnings seem wrong, upon casual inspection of the code.  In any
case, if you compile the same file with gcc 4.7, they don't appear. :)

Any idea which particular gcc fix is responsible for them?

As a workaround, we could set all those variable to some reasonable
value, but that feels like a cheap trick to me...

But I'd rather just not import the fix that causes those warnings.
