When inlining a constructor for a basic integer vector class, my octree code turns from working properly to either stalling or crashing. I've made a small test project to verify that it isn't anything else and, from what I can tell, it is indeed just the inlining that causes the problem. I have tested this same program on MSVS 2005 and it works under all conditions (inline or not).

Attached is the code (and project files) in question.

I have attached a video demonstrating the problem. Hopefully this will help clear things up. It is my guess that the that the project files I sent you had their optimization settings set incorrectly to reproude this bug and that's why you were unable to reproduce it. If that's the case I apologize for not checking that more carefully.

I believe that this problem occurs because of optimization and inlining... perhaps RVO is involved because it would be a case where the compiler could skip the temporary construction of a IVector3. However when this is inlined as well, other values in memory (the variable node_index possibly) seems to be overwritten and goes out of range, causing the crash. If I had more time I would dump the assembly and see exactly what is different but this code represents a hacked up snippet of game code that is due to release shortly and I'm quite busy working on other aspects. For the time being I have bypassed this error by using pragmas to disable inlining for this one function in the game engine itself so there's no rush to fix it, for me.

Although I show the settings I use in the video, I will include the command line for verification here as well:

/Zi /nologo /W3 /WX- /O2 /Ob1 /Oi /Ot /Oy- /GL /D "WIN32" /D "NDEBUG" /D "_CONSOLE" /Gm- /EHsc /MT /GS /Gy /fp:precise /Zc:wchar_t /Zc:forScope /Fp"Release\temp.pch" /Fa"Release\" /Fo"Release\" /Fd"Release\vc100.pdb" /Gd /analyze- /errorReport:queue
