Compile this code

#pragma warning( disable: 4244 )
#pragma warning( disable: 4100 )

inline float Test( float l )
    return ( l + 0.5 );

int main( int argc, char **argv )
    float x = 1.0f;
    x = x * Test( x ) + x * Test( x );
    return x;

with these command-line options

Yes, that's how I worked around it for now, so it's not a showstopper for me.

Seems to work fine if you use 0.5f instead of 0.5 in the Test function.
