This could be a bug in our compiler.   If you have a small test case,
please file a bug report with the test case.

In the meantime, is it possible to avoid this construct?

Yes, that test suite.   I think we adapted it in the past for jsc (we
talked online about that one).

There might be a newer version of the test suite, and ideally we could
use that.
