I just updated fron the trunk (r17498), configured using
'--enable-compile-warnings', and, using gcc-4.3.1, got the following
errors (it occurs four times in the same file, all at calls of
G_LOCK(threads) and G_UNLOCK(threads).

io-gncxml-v2.c:1351: error: dereferencing type-punned pointer will
break strict-aliasing rules

I found a thread on the devel list for a similar problem but nothing
about this. (see

I get a complete build with 'configure --disable-error-on-warning'.
Is it safe to use?
