Gcc 4.1.1 definitely has the problem. The strncmp() error I saw was caused
by its definition on Debian 3.1 (latest stable; hardly cutting edge).

Warn_unused_result seems to trigger from a totally different code path
that's unaffected by -Wno-unused-value. I definitely think that unused-value
is not as generally useful as unused-{function,label,variable}.
unused-{value,parameter} both have a tendency for false positives.
