Of course, the same gcc bug could be hitting some important places in the code.. but that's not a new issue. Only this unit test is really new and exposing this issue.

i wasn't sure if it was the test that was the issue or the code that it 
was testing which is why I'm reluctant to disable the unit tests unless 
I have to.

Thanks for the patch, it does indeed fix the issue at hand.

I suppose the other way to deal with this might be to use gcc from 
devtoolset 9, but I prefer to stick with the CentOS stock GCC if at all 

Now I'm getting a different failure when building the i386 packages 
which was already reported by someone else.  I will follow up on this 
one in that thread.
