I see that 1.14.2 has been released without any of the above happening. 
That's no big deal, but Matt's statement in the release notice "that 
this release doesn't work with gcc 4.8-snapshot" is a bit misleading. As 
I reported, it won't *build* with gcc-4.8 snapshot. Once my patch is 
applied, it builds fine and, from my experience over the last two weeks, 
it works fine too.
