[csmith-dev] Any tricks for narrowing down GCC bugs to avoid duplications?

Hi, csmith-dev!  Long-time blog reader, first-time Csmith user.

My slightly-off-topic question is, does anyone have any specific
recommendations to avoid filing duplicate bugs against GCC?
My current list is pretty short:
 * Use a bleeding-edge SVN checkout of GCC
 * Check http://embed.cs.utah.edu/csmith/gcc-bugs.html for any unfixed
bugs that look similar
 * Search the GCC Bugzilla for likely keywords
 * And of course try not to cover well-trodden ground in the first place.

If you know something that's relevant if you replace "GCC" by "LLVM"
in the above text, that's okay too. :)
