GCC with optimization causes different parsing result

[Tested on mingw]

GCC 3.4.2 with optimization -O2 or higher produces different parsing result
when parsing an invalid SIP message. This causes pjsip-test to fail in
txdata_test(), when parsing a message. This test works fine when no
optimization is specified in GCC, or with Visual C 6 compiler.

Note that this does NOT seem to affect the ultimate result of the parsing (by
much). Valid messages will still be parsed okay, and invalid messages will
still ultimately be rejected. The difference is, the bug causes the whole
message to be rejected on syntax error, while the expected behavior is the
parser should continue parsing the remainder of the message even when there is
syntax error.

Below are screenshot of the test. Basically the test parses a SIP message
(which indeed has incorrect Via header on line 2), but it is expected that the

There is a compilation switch in PJSIP-TEST to test this bug. Enable with
#define INCLUDE_GCC_TEST 1 in test.h (default is 0).
