I've discovered that it symbols in .data section (unlike .bss one) are neither in the odrer they are defined in .c file nor in the reversed order if optimization is on.
I haven't seen such behavior in other compilers or gcc toolchains (I've checked VC++ 9, eVC++, MinGW, mingw-w64).

The test case attached (compile it with at least -O1; to make output goes to a log file, compile it with -DUSE_LOGFILE).

May be, it's not a bug but such a feature...
