It appears that the compiler code that does constant value substitution doesn't agree with how the variable assignment/initialization code does sign extension on pointers. I'm not 100% certain which is correct, but I do believe they should agree.

What versions of the compiler is this supposed to be fixed in? I can repro the bug in debug and release in VS 2010 SP1. With VS 2012 the bug happens in debug builds only. I have not tried with VS 2013.

It would be greatly appreciated if when closing a bug as fixed you could tell us what version it is fixed in.

Hi Aaron:
    Thanks for reporting the issue.
    A fix for this issue has been checked into the compiler sources. The fix should show up in the next release of Visual C++.
