Follow-up Comment #1:

Please refrain from littering the bugtracker with reports that require
absolutely no effort to find.  Anybody can run groff with warning options
enabled, and finding potential issues that way actually causes *less* effort
than finding them in the bug tracker.

As a rule, reporting a compiler warning in the bugtracker is detrimental
unless there is reason to believe that there is an actual bug.

In this case, there is clearly no bug because the language specification says
that it is *valid* to use an undefined string in order to define it to be

If somebody with higher privilege than myself sees an option to completely
delete issues (as opposed to merely closing them). please consider deleting
this and similar issues, because even when closed, it still pollutes the
database and makes searching for past issues gratuitously harder.

Does anybody know what the consequences of flagging issues as "spam" are? 
That might be appropriate, too, but i'm not sure.
